On Wednesday April 18, the Switchyard Pub and Grill is donating a portion of their evening profits to Operation Christmas Card.
The effort is the idea of three boys — Joshua Roebuck, Tucker Houseman and Raven Davis — who are organizing the fundraiser as a High Ability Learner project through Lincoln Elementary schools. The boys are 10 years old.
At Christmas, the operation sent more than 160 care packages and 3,000 Christmas cards to overseas troops in an all-volunteer effort.
The donations were enough to pay the cost ($17) of shipping a box to all the soldiers and sailors on the Christmas Card list.
Businesses as well as individuals offered to contribute – including Nebraskaland National Bank, Modern Tire Pros, Super Suds Car Wash, Arby’s, Sutherland FFA, St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Mullen, Domino’s Pizza, Auto One, and many more.
