Three area charter schools are helping overseas military personnel keep in touch with family members this holiday season.
The schools — Bonita Springs Charter, Gateway Charter and Six Mile Charter Academy — are taking $6.50 donations for prepaid phone cards through Dec. 21, the last day of classes before the two-week winter break. Charter Schools USA of Fort Lauderdale runs the schools.
The effort is part of Operation Uplink, a program that provides free long-distance phone cards to active military and hospitalized veterans.
Donors have the opportunity to include a personal message to soldiers with their contribution, expressing their gratitude and support.
Operation Uplink is a national program sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
