The Livingston County Farm Bureau, Will Country Farm Bureau, Bank of Pontiac and Pontiac First United Methodist Church are teaming up to collect international phone cards and items to be sent to our military personnel in time for the holidays. We don’t want to forget these important military personnel serving our country. Because of the variation of phone cards available on t market, the best way to get the proper cards to our military troops is through monetary contributions. Contributions may be mailed to: Phone Cards for Troops, c/o Livingston County Farm Bureau, 901 W. Howard St., P.O. Box 410, Pontiac, IL 61764. Checks should be made out to: “Phone Cards for Troops”. Please mail in your contributions by December 1, 2014 for the Christmas Holiday.
The phone card program has been very successful and we have received copies of letters and emails from our troops. They are very, very thankful for the support! In cooperation with Will County Farm Bureau Investment group, the goal is to send over 4,000 packages for the holidays!
We thank you for your help and generosity! Our troops truly appreciate your assistance and there is a strong need for all of these items! If you should have any questions, please call the Farm Bureau at 815-842-1103. We again would like to thank Operation Care Packages & the American Legion #1080 for their help and assistance! We have seen and heard that we are making a difference!!!
