Tri-Citians can help lift the spirits of a wounded soldier or recovering veteran by signing a Christmas card at a Pasco event Oct. 11.
American Legion Post 115 of Benton City and former volunteers of U.S. Troop Care Package are working to gather 600 signed cards.
They will be sent to military and Veterans Affairs hospitals in the Washington, D.C., area, as well as to the Walla Walla VA Medical Center.
People can sign cards from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pasco Grange at West Court Street and North Road 64.
Four Benton City women also are making Christmas stockings to be filled with candy to go with the cards.
Call Don Parchen at 509-521-0845 for more information.
