“Our Troops make so many tremendous sacrifices in the name of protecting our freedom, and among the most significant of those sacrifices is spending long periods of time away from loved ones—especially during the holiday season,” said Paula Cornell, Co-Founder and President of For The Troops.

“Throughout the years I’ve been proud to see so many people from throughout Simi Valley and the Ventura county area join with me to send greetings to deployed Freedom Fighters during the holidays. I’m hoping that once again this year we can all join the spirit of the season and spread cheer to the brave men and women who have given so much to our country. The Christmas card signing is our most joyful event every year. We are so grateful to our many generous supporters that help make it possible for us to continue our work, supporting our Heroes. To date we have shipped over 136,563 “We Care” packages” Cornell responds.
