Wind your way through the stacks and sacks, boxes and bins, along the trail of bails of mail, and you’ll find Dr. Laura Landerman-Garber in her Hollis workshop.

Sixteen years ago, she enlisted her family in sending holiday greetings to troops. Two years ago, she set a goal – 5,000 cards for everyone on board an aircraft carrier; she got triple that amount.

So she formed the non-profit “Holiday Cards 4 Our Military NH Challenge” to help with postage, and asked students across the state to sign on. 50,000 cards went out last year.

This year, the challenge reached every state. So far 30 states, and Canada, have sent in more than 100,000 cards. All this holiday spirit ships out in one week.
