Be part of Madison County’s “Operation Warm Heart” sponsored by American Legion Post 157.  

  • Christmas Stockings
  • This is a mass campaign of letters and pictures that will be sent to our military service men and women. We are in the process of gathering names of military personnel with roots here in our county. We already have several names and addresses but need your help to insure that a care package from home is sent to every Madison troop.
  • “Operation Warm Heart” is not just for personnel stationed in areas of conflict. Our goal is that every active duty Madison Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine and Coastguard service member will be sent a little piece of home to let them know we care, respect and appreciate what they are doing for our country.
  • To meet overseas mailing timeline all letters and pictures (no larger than letter size) will need to be collected by 14 November. This campaign is open to all ages. Remember you can make a big difference during this upcoming holiday season. We also plan to do another campaign in the spring timeframe.
  • Since we started this endeavor in early October, our project has gain attention from the AFFOR Special Headquarters Staff Chaplain Office in Afghanistan. They have requested our support to provide care packages and cards for their troops. We have set a goal to send between 35-40 stockings with cards and useful gifts in addition to hundreds of cards and items written or drawn by our local students in grades 1-8th.
