Battleship North Carolina sending cards to veterans


Wilmington, NC (WWAY) – The Battleship North Carolina is asking for help to make the holidays brighter for our veterans by sending them Christmas Cards.

The cards collected by the battleship will be distributed to seventeen VA hospitals throughout the southeastern United States.

Over 6,000 cards were sent to veterans last year.

"We find it's very important because sometimes in these VA hospitals they don't get visitors during the holidays and this one piece of paper with this heart felt thank you holiday wish is the only thing that they get during the season” says Heather Loftin, the Battleship North Carolina promotions director.

If you want to thank a veteran and help support the cause just drop off a card at the battleship by December 14th.
