Operation Gratitude Letters
Volunteers took the time to say “Thank You” during Operation Gratitude Letters of Gratitude Military Community Service project. Telecom Pioneers were able to write in their own words letter of thanks to our men and women serving our country and protect us all. This was a heartfelt opportunity to share words of encouragement and thanks to those in the military that are away from their family and loved ones.
Operation Gratitude-SAY “Thank You”—Every Operation Gratitude Care Package includes a bundle of letters from the American people, thanking troops, veterans, new recruits, wounded heroes and their caregivers, or first responders for their service to our country. Care package recipients tell us that these letters, notes, and drawings are the most cherished items in their box.
During the conference volunteers worked with Operation Gratitude. Operation has delivered more than 2.1 million care packages filled with items donated by grateful Americans and service-friendly companies that want to express their support for heroes serving overseas and here at home. Together we are working to bridge the civilian-service divide. This military based community service event involved making paracord bracelets for our men and women serving our country and protecting our freedom at home. Not only do these bracelets look cool, they can actually be used to save a life in an emergency situation. They are included in Operation Gratitude Care Packages because they’re both functional and meaningful, as they are handmade by an American who wants to show their appreciation to our troops and first responders.
