Lakewood ‘Thank a Servicemember’ returns for 9th year

Nearly 38,000 members of our Armed Forces overseas have received a very special thank you from Lakewood residents, schools, businesses and community groups since the start of the city’s Thank a Servicemember campaign in 2014.

With Sept. 11 as the campaign kickoff date, writing a heartfelt note or letter of thanks to share with US servicemembers during the holidays has become a tradition for many during the fall and winter months in Lakewood.

Lakewood City Hall will have postcards and a collection box at the check-in table at the northeast entrance to the building (off Civic Center Way).

Alternatively, you can print or submit your notes online, eliminating the need for travel or contact.

Visit www.lakewoodcity.org/TAS to learn more about Thank a Servicemember and to see a list of additional locations and campaign partners. With additional questions, call the city’s Community Relations office at (562) 866-9771 ext. 3123.

Please take a few minutes to share your appreciation for the sacrifice of our men and women serving our nation overseas. They will receive your greeting during the holiday season.
