South Jerseyans rally to help troops in Iraq for holidays

Courier-Post Staff

For 7-year-old Matthew Mahon, this holiday season is about giving, not getting.

The Washington Township boy has collected close to $1,000 in donations to buy calling cards for New Jersey soldiers in Iraq. The second-grader, who's taking part in a campaign by his Cub Scout pack, says he won't stop until he hits the $2,000 mark.

"I think the soldiers will be pretty happy," he predicted. "Because if I got a present from New Jersey when I'm in Iraq, I'd be pretty happy."
