Rep. Ugaste Hosts Holiday Gift Card Drive for U.S. Troops

ST. CHARLES – This November, State Representative Dan Ugaste (R-Geneva) is hosting a Holiday Gift Card Drive for U.S. troops. He is accepting gift cards from Amazon, Sam’s Club, Costco, and Dollar Tree at his St. Charles district office (406 Surrey Woods Dr., Unit A) for Operation Support Our Troops – America’s Holiday Stockings.

“Our troops sacrifice so much for our nation, including being away from family during important holidays,” said Rep. Ugaste. “A gift card can provide an opportunity for them to purchase presents for loved ones or a treat for themselves during this holiday season. Spread holiday cheer by giving back to the brave men and women who serve our nation this month!”

Gift cards will be accepted at Rep. Ugaste’s district office in St. Charles (406 Surrey Woods Dr., Unit A) until Tuesday, November 21st. His office is open from 9 AM – 5 PM.

Last year, 4,517 Christmas stockings were shipped to troops by OSOT-A. The organization also offers care packages to active duty deployed service members, a Veterans Assistance program, G.I. Yoga for veterans and families, and the three-day Leap of Faith grief seminar for Gold Star families.
