Perspective: A WIS Editorial - Operation Stars and Stripes

WIS would like to thank our viewers and sponsors for making this year's Operation Stars and Stripes Troop Supply a tremendous success.  This is our third year partnering with the Midlands chapter of Blue Star Mothers to supply care packages to our troops overseas.  When our service men and women are separated from their loved ones, care packages and cards make all the difference.

Through phone bank donations and supply drop off locations at Little Caesars and Safe Federal Credit Union locations, we generated more than $6000 in cash and enough supplies to send about 200 care packages to our troops.

And we couldn't have done it without the many Blue Star Mothers volunteers and coordinators who manned those phones and collected the supplies.  Truly a labor of love.  So thank you for your generosity and participation in the success of this year's Operation Stars and Stripes Troop Supply Drive.
