Operation: With Love From Home

OPERATION: With LOVE From HOME works to support our deployed armed forces stationed in harm's way. Supported by the Community Outreach Department at Queen of the Valley Medical Center, OWLFH counts on a group of non-partisan volunteers who recognize the need to keep our service men and women are in our hearts and prayers. The group actively supports their efforts and recognizes their sacrifices on behalf of our country.

To show support, three times a year the group works to collect donations to put together care packages for our troop abroad. Each package contains items the troops need: socks,

Each package also contains a hand-written letter of support and thanks. Sometimes, these packages are the only correspondence troops receive from home. They serve as a vital link to remind troops they are valued and loved.
