The scarf makers at Peace Lutheran Church in Galloway and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Absecon have been receiving notes of thanks for the 200-plus scarves they made and sent to troops in Afghanistan.

“Thank you so much for the scarves that you sent,” reads a note from Steve Kaiser, accompanied by a picture. “We use them out in the field as it gets chilly at night! Thank you all for your prayers and support - they are much appreciated. I am touched by the effort and care that went into each one. God bless you and thank you again.” 

Kate Hodges of 1461st Transportation Co. sent another note of thanks.

“A fellow soldier received a care package you sent and gave me the scarf that was inside the box,” she wrote. “Thank you very much. It is a beautiful scarf and is very warm. It was very thoughtful to include scarves in your care packages.”

“I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into making the scarves and sending the packages,” she went on. “It really brightens the soldiers' day when they receive care packages from home, and it doesn't even have to be from anyone they know. Thank you again for your kindness and generosity.”
