#GivingTuesdayMilitary effort to collect mail for active military and veterans in the U.P.

North Central UP

MARQUETTE COUNTY, Mich. (WJMN) – In honor of Giving Tuesday coming up, one Yooper is using that to spread goodness to active military and veterans all month long.

Anna Dravland, the Founder of Spread Goodness Day is a U.P. Ambassador for Giving Tuesday Military. She has opened a P.O. Box for the month of November where can send letters, cards and small gifts to local men and women serving in the 652nd and 107th military units and veterans living at at the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans.

“Basically what we’re going to do is just collect it,” said Dravland. “We won’t open a single thing, we’ll just inventory who sent some things so there is some transparency and then on December 1st, we’re just going to give it all away to the three organizations. There is just really no bad reason not to. Our military obviously needs our support. They work hard, they’re on the frontlines of everything that we face as a country and we know that we are in a crazy time right now.”
