This year for Veteran’s Day, Imagine Learning employees honored veterans by participating in Operation Gratitude. During our weekly company-wide meeting, we celebrated a few employee veterans—Todd, Kelly, and Eric—and learned about the mission of Operation Gratitude. Afterwards, we gathered to write letters of gratitude and appreciation for Operation Gratitude. We also donated toys and other items for care packages.
Operation Gratitude sends over 100,000 care packages a year to our soldiers in the armed services, whether they be veterans, wounded warriors, new recruits, or deployed overseas. The care packages include hygiene items, gifts to lift the spirit, and even toys. Did you know that soldiers in Afghanistan or Iraq can use toys to learn information from local kids about IEDs in the area? It seems like such a small thing, but it saves soldiers’ lives.
If you can, take a moment to write a letter to a soldier. It is sure to brighten someone’s day.
