For our U.S. troops deployed overseas, letters from back home make all the difference in the world. And what better way to show servicemembers support and care than a personal and heartfelt letter thanking them for their service.
The Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) is honored to join the city of University Place, Washington in supporting the recently deployed 16th Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) with a letter writing campaign to show the brigade our community cares. The city of University Place partners with the 16th CAB as part of the JBLM Community Connector program. The Community Connector Program was developed to connect Puget Sound communities with a specific unit to bring awareness and partnership. University Place has been connected with the 16th CAB since 2011 and both organizations have formed a strong bond over the years. The 16th CAB deployed to Afghanistan in April and are not expected to return until January 2015 (read more about what the city is planning for the brigade’s return here).
The community is cordially invited to join BEST for a special letter writing activity that is being held at Our BEST Space in University Place every Monday afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The activity, lead by paper artist Diane Rasch, gives participants the opportunity to design a custom, handmade card to write their letter of thanks and well wishes to servicemembers in the 16th CAB. Paper and supplies are provided for one card.
There is no charge to participate in this activity and all are welcome! To learn more, visit the Our BEST Space activity calendar on our website.
