WestportREADS 2018: Support Our Troops

Saturday, Jan 13, 2018 - Tuesday, Feb 13, 2018

As part of WestportREADS, members of the community are invited to write letters to servicemen and women to let them know they are remembered and connected to the community back home. To further support that connection, the Library will also be collecting gift cards (Visa, Mastercard or American Express, not store-specific cards) in any denomination to provide WiFi and satellite phone access for deployed troops to keep in contact with loved ones. The cards will be to be sent to the nonprofit organization Support Our Troops which provides millions of dollars’ worth of care goods and services including family assistance, kid’s camp assistance, positive public support and more at hundreds of locations around the globe. 

There will be a letter writing station in the Great Hall and the Creation Station in the Smilow Family Children's Library. Both the completed letters and gifts cards may be given to any of the service desks (reference, main circulation or children's library.)
