Books for Soldiers
To support our troops serving overseas, a "Books for Soldiers" program was begun in 2005.
The committee gathers and boxes books that are then sent to soldiers who have requested them. We have received many notes from the soldiers expressing their appreciation for our efforts. In 2007, we received a Certificate of Appreciation
Since 2005, the Friends have sent over 3,000 books to our soldiers. We are happy to have found this small way to support our troops serving so far from home.
If you know of a soldier who would like to receive books, you can contact us with his/her information by calling 630-584-0076 x231 and leave a message. For military security purposes we must have a specific name and address to send books.
