Letter to the Editor
St. Jude Student Grateful For ‘PA Wounded Warrior’ Support

Dear Editor:

My name is Mary Grace Eckert. I would like to thank all the people and businesses of the Mountaintop community and surrounding areas that supported my project to help our “Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors”.

So many people and business owners were so kind, thoughtful and generous when given an opportunity to remember, thank or acknowledge our service men and women who have sacrificed so much in order to keep our country free.

I want to thank the “Mountaintop Eagle” staff for having an interest in my project and helping me to get the word out into the community.

It gave me such a joy to deliver the Christmas cards to our soldiers at Walter Reed Military Hospital in which you wrote your own Christmas messages. The soldiers were so grateful for your thoughts and cards; because, yes, they do feel forgotten.

With your help, I was able to present a check for $3,565.50 to Mrs. Helen Sajer, the founder and President of the PA Wounded Warriors. 100% of the donations will go directly to our PA wounded soldiers. Donations are used for food, heating, mortgage/rent and home repairs.

I have received much encouragement to keep my project going; to make it a yearly tradition and I intend to do just that. Thank you for your generosity and may God bless you and our soldiers!

Sincerely, Mary Grace Eckert
