State Representative Paul K. Frost (R-Auburn) is seeking the names of military servicemen and women from the towns in his district who will not be home for the holidays so he can send them a Christmas care package, an annual tradition since he took office in 1997. His district is composed of Auburn, Millbury, precincts 2 and 3 in Oxford, and precinct 4 of Charlton.

“The holiday season brings families and communities together,” said Frost, “but there are many men and women in service to our country who cannot come home this time of year. I wish to acknowledge and thank them and their families for their enormous commitment to protecting our nation and way of life, wherever they may be stationed. I have been sending care packages for the past 21 years now as a small gesture to express my appreciation for these brave men and women and let them know we are thinking about them back at home. Christmas and the holiday season is a time for family and community, and all those serving in our military should be a part of our thoughts, prayers and well wishes during this joyous season.”

Packages contain candies, cookies, local newspapers and holiday greeting messages. If anyone in the district has a loved one from the district and in the military who will not be home for the holidays, call Rep. Frost’s office at 617-722-2489 or email by Monday, December 10 to have a care package sent to them. Please include any food allergies when providing details.
