Operation: Love ... From Home sends care packages to troops

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, troops are traditionally remembered with packages. However, once the holidays are over, many service men and women may begin to feel isolated as packages and letters slow down. Many train themselves to think that Valentine’s Day is merely just another day. Nvest Financial Group’s goal with the initiative is to remind at least some of our service men and women that everyone from home is thinking of them.

Each year starting after Christmas, Nvest has committed to promoting Operation: Love ... From Home. Nvest collects goods, including handwritten notes and cards from area school children, packages and ships the goods in time to arrive for Valentine’s Day. Nvest hopes the endeavor will grow each year so that one day the same can be accomplished for multiple units serving overseas.

From everyone at Nvest, thank you for contributing. We are extremely grateful to the community and everyone who participated. And a special thank you to Mail-It-Unlimited for donating the packaging material and helping ship the items in time. Without the love and support of the communities in Kennebunk, Portsmouth, Newburyport and surrounding towns, Nvest would not have been able to send as many items and cards.

Be sure to check the Kennebunk Post in January 2019 for the next Operation: Love ... From Home.
