Help Lakewood 'Thank a Servicemember'

Help Lakewood 'Thank a Servicemember'

Over 35,000 members of our Armed Forces overseas have received a very special thank you from Lakewood residents, schools, businesses and community groups since the start of Lakewood’s Thank a Servicemember campaign in 2014.

In fact, with September 11 as the campaign kickoff, writing a heartfelt note or letter of thanks to share with US servicemembers during the holidays has become a tradition for many during the fall and winter months in Lakewood.

COVID-19 health and safety precautions will again be observed for this year’s campaign. Lakewood City Hall will have postcards and a collection box at the check-in table at the northeast entrance to the building (off Civic Center Way).

Alternatively, you can print or submit your notes online, eliminating the need for travel or contact.

During these unprecedented times, please take a few minutes to share your appreciation for the sacrifice of our men and women serving our nation overseas. They will receive your greeting during the holiday season.
