Harborfields High School students from the Career Transitions class recently worked in collaboration with Alissa Rosenburg’s speech and language students to support military troops during the holidays. 

During students’ lunch periods on Nov. 13, the volunteers asked their peers to write letters to soldiers, thanking them for their service and wishing them a happy holiday season. The letters will be sent out via care packages to Operation Gratitude – a country-wide organization, founded in 2003 by Carolyn Blashek, whose main mission is to forge strong bonds between Americans and service members through acts of gratitude. 

Every year, Operation Gratitude sends approximately 300,000 individually addressed care packages to service members and their families, first responders, veterans, wounded heroes and their care givers.
