You may have read my blog earlier this week about the Halloween Candy Buyback program our office is taking part in. What you may not know is the bigger picture behind this event — taking part in Operation Gratitude.
Operation Gratitude seeks to lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm’s way. Operation Gratitude care packages contain food, hygiene products, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.
Through Collection Drives, Letter Writing Campaigns and Donations of funds for shipping expenses, Operation Gratitude provides civilians anywhere in America a way to express their respect and appreciation to the men and women of the U.S. Military in an active, hands-on expression of thanks.
Halloween Candy Buyback is just a small part of their overall program and we are proud to be involved. Visit Operation Gratitude for more information, videos and what you can do to get involved.
