In October we joined together with area scouts and students to say ‘thank you’ to active military service members who are deployed and area veterans with a letter writing campaign for Operation: Gratitude. The campaign was organized by members of F&P’s Veteran’s Service Group who collected more than 300 letters and cards. Thank you to those staff members and community members who were able to write these kind and sensitive letters to the men and women who are serving our country. These letters will help lift their spirits and bring a smile to their faces.
Operation: Gratitude is a non-profit organization that sends care packages and letters of appreciation to active duty troops deployed overseas, families who are waiting for loved ones to return home, veterans in hospitals and homeless shelters, and wounded warriors.
