For the fourth year, The Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association (GARMA) and Goin’ Postal Gettysburg in a cooperative effort will join with the community to send holiday boxes to our troops currently serving abroad. Empty boxes can be found at participating local merchants who are GARMA members. After the boxes are filled, Goin’ Postal Gettysburg will be shipping them out to our soldiers. The community is being asked to participate by helping to fill the boxes with all kinds of goodies from Gettysburg.

Some of the suggested items would include: snacks/candies, personal hygiene items, and personal items.  Note many of the items can be purchased through the different GARMA Merchants. CLICK HERE for a list of items.
CLICK HERE for addressing tips. The boxes will be mailed out in November so they will arrive in time for our soldiers to receive them over the holiday season. We are also collecting names and addresses of soldiers to receive the packages. Please email the information to Gettysburg@goinpostal.com and every effort will be made to send a box to as many as possible.

For only $1 members of the community can include their own personal words of support to the soldiers. Just purchase a postcard from Goin’ Postal Gettysburg and write your message on it. Each postcard will be included inside one of the boxes. The proceeds of the sales of these postcards will go exclusively towards the cost of shipping the boxes.

This is a great opportunity for Gettysburg to let our troops know how very much we appreciate their sacrifice by sending them a little bit of home along with our best wishes for their safe return.
