For our 10th year, Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG is sending love to our American servicemen and women this February with Lite Rock’s Valentines for the Troops.

Lite Rock is teaming up with American Recreation Military Services to send valentines to our troops in Afghanistan and anywhere around the world where New Jersey military personnel are presently deployed.

More troops from New Jersey are deployed right now than at any time since 2005.  Approximately 1200 New Jersey soldiers, about 850 of them New Jersey Guardsmen and women, are serving across the world, in places such as Africa, Kuwait, Qatar, and Afghanistan.

Please help us remember them and show we love them by collecting homemade valentines and small teddy bears.

This year, we’ve also been asked to make a special appeal for black socks. All sizes for men and women are needed, but especially mens socks in larger sizes.

You can drop them off at the Lite Rock studios at 950 Tilton Road in Northfield, Monday thru Friday between 8:30 & 5pm. The deadline is 5pm Thursday, February 12th. School, church and civic groups…we really need your help!
