Remember our Troops – CBW Phone Card Drive Kicks Off
by Mary Lynly, CBW Publicity

Thanks so much for providing the calling cards that make it possible to communicate with my husband while he is deployed in Kuwait. Our twins just celebrated their first birthday a week ago and although daddy was miles and miles away, his voice during the call created a very cherished and memorable moment! God Bless you on your continued efforts to keep our families connected. Sincerely, Shilonda Blount

This is our California Bowling Writers 14th Annual charity effort to provide phone cards for our troops. It appears activity is ramping up for our military and families are truly grateful for the opportunity to connect with loved ones serving in areas of peril. Notes like this make our efforts worthwhile.

We will always need our military to keep us safe here and abroad and this is a small gesture on our part and a huge thing in helping them connect.

DONATE in Honor, in Memory, or in Support of our men and women in uniform.

We send cards through the YMCA at 29 Palms Marine and Naval base but if you will provide an address we will gladly see that the card is sent directly to your designated military person serving overseas.

Phone cards go to all branches of the service and are sent to arrive for Valentine’s Day 2018. Our cumulative total is over $77,000 and we have sent approximately 3750 –125 to 300 minute cards to our military. If you can hold a 50/50 in your league or just solicit donations. Send the info to your email buddies.

Make checks payable to “CBW” and mail to CBW Treasurer Tina Martin, 57 Shields Lane, Novato, CA 94947-3877. Deadline for donations is December 31, 2017. Join in helping us make a difference.
