Children at Fillmore Central’s School Age Childcare (SAC) wrote letters to service members in the Holidays for Heroes program to wish them happy holidays and to thank them for their service.

Janeen Wingert, Director of Fillmore Central SAC, said the idea came from a directors meeting and was put on the website and seemed like a great activity for the children. The children wrote letters to service members who are overseas and will not be able to be home with their families this holiday season.

Jessica Marzolf, who runs the program in the mornings, also helped the children with their letters and said the children were very excited to write to service members. Wingert stated that many of the kids have parents or family members in the service so it was very meaningful to them as they know the sacrifice military members and their families make.

Twenty-seven children wrote letters to service members with wishes such as “Happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas” and also expressed their thankfulness for the service of the person they were writing to. Various holiday greetings were written on the chalk board and the kids could choose which they would like to use in their letters and could add anything else they wished.

Olivia Sethre, age 9, was happy to write a letter to a service member and said she wrote, “Have a Merry Christmas” and “I hope you are able to see your family” in her letter while Abigail Parker, age 8, wrote “Happy Thanksgiving,” “Merry Christmas,” and “Happy New Year” in her letter making sure to cover all of the recent and upcoming holidays.

Many of the children also drew pictures along with their letters. The most popular, according to Wingert, were pictures of trees, Santa Claus, and presents under the tree. The pictures drawn by the kids are sure to bring a smile to the faces of the service members who receive them.

Wingert commented that the letters were written so well that they made her cry when she read them. It is no doubt the letters from the Fillmore Central SAC children will mean a great deal to the service members who receive them and may produce a tear when the letters are read by the service member as well.
