Card Drive for PFC Jacob Lyelra

PFC Jacob Lylera is a 2008 Graduate from Rushville High School in Indiana. He is nineteen and just about to turn twenty.

He was also gravely injured in a bombing in Afganistan. Amongst many injuries, Jacob is now paralyzed. While his family is trying to attend to his needs and aide his recovery there is significant expense, because he is receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC.

Through November 20th, I am doing a card drive for Jacob. Drop your addressed and stamped cards at Jimmy John's on West Jefferson Blvd. I will choose 5 winners from the cards, and each of these individuals will win a $20 gift card. The card drive isn't about Jimmy John's so the gift cards will be from some of my awesome neighbors such as, Culvers, Dunkin Donuts, Moe's and IHOP, and one from Jimmy John's. (Be sure your return address is on the envelope, so I know where to send your gift card if you win!)

For each card dropped off, I will personally send Jacob's family a dollar (up to $250). If you would like to contribute individually, just include it in your card.

Here is Jacob's Address:

Pfc. Jacob Lyerla
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
Ward 58
Room 5832
Washington, DC 20307

Let's give Jacob's family a nice Thanksgiving surprise and let him know that we are behind him and his family, and how much we appreciate his service.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me at:

Thanks for your time - Marika Hamilton
