Watertown’s Operation American Soldier received a big helping hand from a Cambridge group that made more than 300 Valentine’s Day cards to send to the troops.
OAS co-founder Wendy Rocca welcomed the cards, which were made by Many Helping Hands 365. Operation American Soldier sends care packages to servicemen and servicewomen around the world, and the Valentine’s Day cards will go with them, Rocca said.
“They made 3400+ cards for Valentine’s. Almost 300 for our Veterans and our troops,” Rocca said. “OAS will be sending a bunch with our packages.”
On Martin Luther King Day, the group invited people to volunteer to make cards to give to elders and seniors.
Many of them are now displayed in the windows of Cambridge City Hall. See a photo on the Many Helping Hands Facebook page.
