Help soldiers’ families with gift cards

Gift cards donated to our Oregon National Guard families are so appreciated during the holiday season. Families of deployed soldiers often experience financial difficulties, especially during this expensive time of year. The gift cards are distributed all around our state under the direction of the Oregon National Guard Association.

The cards offer some financial relief to families, and demonstrate our appreciation to our soldiers and their families. Citizens of our state can help these families during the holidays by sending gift cards, for any amount, through the Oregon National Guard Association.

Gift cards for grocery stores, toys, clothing or fuel are appreciated. It’s a great way to let our soldiers and their families know we appreciate them.

Send gift cards to: Oregon National Guard Association, P.O. Box 14350, Salem, OR 97309.

Thank you!
