Cards & Cocoa for the Troops

Monterey Old Capitol Lions invite you to join them in showing your support for our troops in harm’s way. Since 2003, Cards & Cocoa for the Troops has shipped over seven tons of sundry items, snacks and sporting goods to troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. They’ve even taken special requests and run campaigns to fulfill those requests, such as one for thirty soccer balls from one platoon commander, whose troops used the balls as outreach tools to connect with local youth. This kind of connection with the local citizenry helps drive out insurgents and helps keep civilians and troops safer.

The Lions of Monterey Old Capitol work with over 200 other community volunteers to collect the items, pack them up and ship them over. Anyone interested in getting involved with this project should contact Cindy Stanley at 831-373-7362.
