MINNEAPOLIS — Lund Food Holdings here, parent company of Lunds and Byerly’s, is helping Minnesota troops overseas send holiday greetings home.

The retailer is sponsoring "Courage Cards for the Troops," which sends holiday greeting cards to local servicemen and service women serving in Iraq.

For every four boxes of Courage Cards sold from November 2-11, 2009, Courage Center will donate one box of blank cards to members of the Minnesota National Guard’s 34th Infantry currently serving in Iraq. The goal is to send 1,000 boxes. Courage Center is a Minneapolis-based nonprofit rehabilitation and resource center.

The Courage Cards 2009 holiday greeting card collection features the work of 25 artists, most with disabilities, from around the world (including 12 from Minnesota) who have provided their artworks to Courage Center.

Lund and Courage Center are sponsoring the program with GLS Companies and KARE 11. This Sat. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lunds Ford Parkway, Byerly’s St. Louis Park and Roseville locations, shoppers can meet Courage Center representatives and veterans who have been assisted by the rehabilitation services offered through Courage Center.
