The Coastal Bank has launched a its third annual community-wide initiative to raise money for the USO’s Operation Phone Home, which provides pre-paid phone cards to deployed military personnel, enabling them to call loved ones while away from their families this holiday season. The fundraising campaign runs through Nov. 30.
A $5 donation will provide a soldier with a phone card to call home. Cards will be given to deployed members of the U.S. Army, Army National Guard, Air National Guard, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Naval Reserve in December.
Anyone donating $5 or more to The Coastal Bank’s USO Operation Phone Home initiative will be entered into a drawing to win a free year of free Chick-fil-A. Two winners will be announced at the conclusion of the campaign.
Cards can be purchased online at www.phonehomesav.com, or visit a Coastal Bank in Savannah, Pooler, Rincon or Hinesville to make a donation to the 2012 USO Operation Phone Home campaign.
