Stockton, CA – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) announced the return of his annual “Holiday Cards for Our Troops” program. Through this program, constituents are invited to submit cards to either of the Congressman’s district offices, which will be delivered to troops at home and overseas during the upcoming holiday season.

Each year, with the exception of last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of cards with personal messages of gratitude from our community are collected and sent off to our service members.

“Those who serve our great nation have made and continue to make tremendous sacrifices to protect our country and the values we hold dear,” said Congressman McNerney. “One of those many sacrifices is spending the holidays away from their homes and loved ones. This program gives people in our community the opportunity to send some holiday cheer and messages of gratitude to these heroes for all that they do.”

Holiday cards will be sent to troops stationed overseas in packages organized by the American Red Cross of the Bay Area, Contra Costa Blue Star Moms, and Operation Creekside.

To participate in the program, make or purchase a holiday card and write a message of thanks to a service member. Cards must be delivered to Congressman McNerney’s offices in Stockton or Antioch by Friday, November 19th, 2021. Cards must meet the following guidelines:

  • Make sure to sign your card.
  • Use salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program.
  • Do not include inserts such as photographs or candy.
  • Please do not include confetti or glitter on or inside the cards or envelopes.
  • Cards should not have an address for a return address.
  • Cards should remain inside an unsealed envelope.

Holiday cards can be delivered to Congressman McNerney’s offices between 9am–5pm starting Monday, November 15th through Friday, November 19th.
