Lite Rock’s Valentines for the Troops – How to Help Send Love
For 15 years, Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG has teamed up with American Recreation Military Services to send American soldiers serving around the world some love from South Jersey with Lite Rock's Valentines for the Troops.
Lite Rock's Valentines for the Troops helps put valentines in the hands of some of the 170,000 American military personnel, many from New Jersey, who are serving in 150 countries around the word, including thousands who were recently deployed to the Middle East.
Please help us remember them and show them some South Jersey love by donating homemade valentines cards, chocolates, and small teddy bears.
We team up with the New Jersey-based non-profit ARMS (American recreational Military Services) each year for Lite Rock's Valentines for the Troops. Our annual goal is to provide a care package for every service member from New Jersey.
This year, we’ve also been asked to make a special appeal for the following items:
You can drop your Valentines off at the Lite Rock studio located at 950 Tilton Road in Northfield, Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 5 PM. The deadline is Thursday, February 13th at 5 PM.
Schools, churches and civic groups…we really need your help this year!
