Wounded Heroes is asking for children at VBS to write letters

Chuck Reed, founder of the nonprofit organization based in Louisville, wants children participating in vacation Bible schools during the month of June to write letters that will be placed in boxes filled with an assortment of goodies intended to show the love of folks back home.

Reed said he believes the letters from children, whether written in crayon or ink, will mean more to military personnel than any other item in the care package.

“Just being remembered is what is important to our deployed military personnel,” he said. “It just kind of reinforces that someone has them on their minds and in their prayers.”

Kentucky Baptist Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood is encouraging churches to get involved with the letter-writing campaign.

“This is a way that our VBS children can let our troops know they care, that they’re praying for them, and that they have a Savior who loves them,” Chitwood said.

I think this is a great way to help show appreciation to our military.

Churches should send letters by June 30, 2018 to:

Kentucky Wounded Heroes
11507 Main St.
Louisville, KY 40243.

Your Church May choose to do this for your local state wounded heroes program.

I tried to find Tennessee and couldn’t a chapter for Tennessee. If anyone knows of one, please let me know.

Feel free to share in the comments your states Wounded Heroes address as well. Thanks!
