105.1 The Bull Receives A Letter from A Soldier

This was the second year that 105.1 The Bull has taken the lead and teamed up with local elementary schools to fill shoeboxes for soldiers during the holiday season. After a couple of months working with elementary schools, 105.1 The Bull received over two hundred boxes for soldiers, which is a major increase and a brand new record. After a few months a letter was received from a soldier.

“Your guys’ support means everything to us. It is very humbling to see so many shoeboxes full of stuff that we all love. In reality, anything sent to us during the holiday season means so much. It shows us that we are here for a purpose! Just a little about me: I am from Texas, and I enlisted as san infantrymen in special operations. I joined after college about three years ago, and I just had my birthday here in the country turning 28. Again thank you for your support! I can’t say I have ever been to Springfield, MO, but I can tell it is an area full of friendly loving folks!” said SPC Matthew Mecum.

105.1 The Bull is proud to receive such positive feedback from “Shoebox for Soldiers”. A letter like this really shows how the Shoeboxes benefit soldiers during the holiday season. 105.1 The Bull looks forward to another great year of giving in 2018!
