LAWTON, Okla., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Carol Herrick may have recently joined Operation Homefront Oklahoma as its chapter president, but she’s wasting no time in digging in and setting up shop. Long involved in helping area military families, one of the first things Herrick did in her new job was to announce the kickoff of the chapter’s holiday programs, which serve junior enlisted troops, their families and wounded warriors who have returned home.
“For Thanksgiving, we are distributing food baskets to military families that could use a little extra support this year,” Herrick said. “For Christmas, we are planning some wonderful surprises for our military families and wounded warriors in the area. Anything we can do to add a little cheer this time of year will make a big difference to our military families,” she concluded.
The chapter is seeking financial donations and gift cards that will be used to purchase supplies for the Thanksgiving gift baskets. Those wishing to contribute or to volunteer their time, or who know of military families that would benefit from this program may contact Carol Herrick at (580) 583-7262, or via e-mail at [email protected].
