Stamps for the Wounded
P.O. Box 297
Dunn Loring, VA 22027
Many wounded veterans find great enjoyment in stamp collecting. Thanks to the Lions’ Club and to many devoted volunteers, this postage stamp program gives these hospital or wheelchair-bound vets something to do, and something to look forward to. Trading duplicates also connects them with other collectors.
Recycle the stamps from your own mail to “brighten someone’s day!” Leave about a 1/2 inch border of envelope around the perforations of the stamp. Do not remove the stamp from the envelope it is glued to. The veterans prefer to do that themselves. It’s part of their fun.
This is such a simple and easy way to give back to the servicemen and women who have given so much. Please tell your friends about this.
