To the Editor:

The families of deployed Oregon National Guard soldiers often leave families behind, who make great financial sacrifices.  Citizens of our state can help these families by sending gift cards for any amount to our Oregon National Guard.

Gift cards for grocery stores, toys, clothing or fuel are appreciated.  Send the gift cards to Col. Dave Ferre, who will distribute the gift cards to the neediest of the Oregon National Guard families all around Oregon.

It’s a great way to let our soldiers and their families know that we appreciate them.

Send gift cards to:

Col. Dave Ferre
