SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES: The 914th Airlift Wing in Niagara Falls is currently deployed to southwest Asia. Our special mission envelopes for January and February are designated for “Operation Enduring Comfort”. This is a volunteer group at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Cambria that provides support, family activities, and opportunities for networking to the relatives of local servicemen while their loved ones are deployed overseas. Their work is funded completely through donations. Your generosity will be appreciated by our local military families during this stressful time.
