SANDWICH - Today, State Representative Randy Hunt (R-Sandwich) announced that he will be collecting Christmas and Holiday cards for our military troops serving overseas. Working in conjunction with Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops, Representative Hunt's office will act as a collection point and forward the cards directly to our military service members.
Everyone is encouraged to drop off unsealed Christmas and Holiday cards addressed to "American Service Member" at 297 Quaker Meeting House Road in East Sandwich (02537). There is a 24-hour drop box located there and the office is open weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
