As the year 2010 comes to a close we want to let all our supporters know that "Christmas in July" is an ongoing success story for the Brookings-Harbor Reds Shirts supporting our troops. It can't be Christmas all year round, but this special project sure makes the soldiers feel like it's Christmas each summer.
A letter from one of our Christmas in July recipients reads as follows:
Brookings Harbor Redshirts,
Got your huge care package full of goodies & necessities.
Enjoyed the letter and photos as well.
Wanted to send you a BIG thank you. We now have a Chapel/Community Center where the Soldiers can stop by and relax and pick up stuff people send over.
– we can actually use the freezer pops. We have small frig/freezers that we put them in.
Also, for my new friends, attached is my monthly newsletter that I send out. I’ll include you in future ones as well.

The Red Shirts have had "Christmas in July" as an ongoing program for over 4 years now and we will continue to do whatever we can to raise the morale of our troops throughout the year. Thanks to all of you for caring.
