About OWC

Operation Winchendon Cares collects donations and mails packages to any military personnel with ties to Winchendon regardless of where he or she is stationed. We want to show our support for our men and women serving and how much we appreciate their bravery and the sacrifices that they make to ensure our safety and freedom.

Anyone is welcome to help by writing cards or letters, drawing pictures, or dropping off donations to be sent or stop in and see the pictures and read the letters that we have received from some very grateful men and women! Volunteers are welcome to help package donations.
