Every Care Package Counts

Remembering Gratitude
Dear Friends,

Our Troops need you. They need to know they are remembered and appreciated for the Inside the Boxsacrifices they make each day.

All of you — our dedicated supporters – have made a tremendous difference in service members’ lives over the past 11 years.

However, the need is still great.

Why? Because the millions of Veterans and Wounded Warriors, and the tens of thousands of men and women still deployed in harm’s way, need a reminder that someone at home is thinking of them. 

Whether you knit a warm scarf, donate care package items, give $15 to send one package, $45 to send three packages, or send a package every month of the year for $180, we need your help.

As we celebrate National Military Appreciation Month throughout May, I hope you will take this opportunity to visit www.OperationGratitude.org and support our continuing mission to serve those who serve.

Fondly,

Carolyn signature

    Please take a minute to learn about Operation Gratitude/Scarves for Troops. It’s a cause near and dear to my heart. I donate each year in memory of my Grandfather who was a Veteran of the Koran War.
