Support our troops by enjoying food
Operation Mom provides direct support to our military personnel currently serving in the Armed Forces by sending letters of encouragement, food packages and other necessities needed and appreciated by our troops. Their motto is "Our family - your freedom."
The soldiers appreciate their efforts. "Just the name mom brings comfortable thoughts of home," says a soldier on Operation Mom's website. "When you are so far from home it's nice to know that people care and are thinking about you."
Now that the holidays are approaching, Operation Mom, a nonprofit organization, is holding their annual "Christmas for the Troops Spaghetti Feed" in the Niles district of Fremont. This is a chance for everyone to show support for our troops overseas. Proceeds will go toward filling up packages to send to the troops for Christmas.
For more information call Maggie at (510) 582-1424 or Sandra at (510) 207-8299. You can also visit their website www.operationmom.org. For more information on Operation Mom you can visit TCV's online archives at www.tricityvoice.com.
