Bishop Kelley Students support US Troops

TULSA, Okla - Bishop Kelley students and staff have set out to accomplish a goal that may seem impossible: To write Christmas cards to all 100,000 servicemen and woman who are stationed in the Middle East.

Students have until November 15th to finish the project. That will give the Blue Star Mothers enough time to place the cards into care packages that they will ship to Iraq and Afghanistan by Christmas.

The local Blue Star Mothers ship thousands of "Freedom Boxes" to US troops each year. They contain everything from snacks to toiletries.
