The Coast Guard Foundation is seeking donations of iTunes and Amazon gift cards to distribute this holiday season to U.S. Coast Guard members on long deployments.

“The men and women of the Coast Guard work tirelessly to protect our shores; knowing that Americans are grateful for their service is a wonderful gesture,” Coast Guard Foundation President Anne B. Brengle stated in a press release. “These gift cards are a small token of appreciation for all that the heroes of the Coast Guard do for all of us.”

The Foundation is donating Kindles and iPods to the Guard members, and is hoping that the public will be generous in its donation of gift cards that can be used to download music, movies, books and more.

Donations of gift cards may be sent to the Coast Guard Foundation, 394 Taugwonk Road, Stonington, CT 06378. Or learn more at www.coastguardfoundation.org.
