4th Annual Project Santa

Project Santa 2007

Presented by Roger & Sharon Kritzer- Gold Star Parents

September 29, 2007

It is time for our Fourth Annual Project Santa. Our mission is to show appreciation to our soldiers for their sacrifices that they make each and every day. We want them to know they are missed and that they are always in our thoughts and prayers. What they are doing is important and they help make it possible for all of us to live in freedom and peace.

Project Santa was started at Fort Hood, TX in 2004 by Tracy Lee Tracy the FRG Leader. We joined the project with her in 2004 and sent tons of support for the troops in Iraq. We raised over $20,000. and sent over 1000 packages. In 2005 and 2006 we took Project Santa on ourselves and we did it in memory of our son PFC Bradley G. Kritzer who was killed in action May 5, 2004 in Baghdad, Iraq.

Each Christmas we make a big effort to send packages to our troops overseas and to our wounded in the states. This will be the fourth year we have done Project Santa and we are hoping it will be a great success. The purpose of this letter is to ask you to contribute to Project Santa to help defray the cost of postage, items for packages and expenses.

This year we are also sponsoring a concert by Ricky Lee, one of the best new Country Entertainers, a Nashville Recording Artist,( who will be going to Walter Reed Army Hospital at Christmas time to perform for the wounded soldiers and their families. We plan on taking gifts to present to the wounded when he does his concert.

Please join us today. Your support is needed. Thank you for whatever you can do.
