11.29.2012 Costa Launches Holiday Card Drive for Troops

Washington, DC – Rep. Jim Costa announced the launch of his holiday card drive for active duty members of the military and veterans. Costa invites the people of the 20th District to write holiday messages for Valley veterans and service members who have been wounded in action. The cards will be delivered to veterans at the Fresno VA Medical Center and service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“During the holidays, let us take time to show our gratitude to those who have given so much for our country,” said Costa. “Many of our brave men and women will be spending the holidays away from their families while they are working on their recovery. I encourage the people of our Valley to get involved and let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers this holiday season.”     


Constituents are encouraged to drop cards off at Costa’s Fresno district office by December 15th. If mailing cards, please place them in a separate envelope and send to:

Congressman Jim Costa

“Holiday Cards for our Troops”

855 M St, Suite 940

Fresno, CA 93721

All cards should be unaddressed, signed, and placed in unsealed envelopes. Please refrain from purchasing or making cards that include glitter as they can aggravate health issues of ill or injured soldiers.

The cards will be delivered in coordination with the American Red Cross and the Fresno VA Medical Center on behalf of the people of California’s 20th Congressional District. For more information, please contact Rep. Costa’s office at 559-495-1620.
