For more than 3 years, Carolina SeniorCare PACE participants have shown “love of neighbor” by designing care cards for Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude is a non-profit organization that demonstrates actions are louder than words by sending care packages to over 2.2 million of our nation’s heroes since founded in 2003.
Carolina SeniorCare participants enjoy giving back to the community. For holidays including Labor Day, July 4th, Christmas, Halloween and more, Carolina SeniorCare participants design one-of-a-kind cards that are placed in the care packages provided to deployed troops, military families, veterans, wounded heroes, and first responders as designated by Operation Gratitude. Showing their spirit of gratitude, participants are making approximate 60 cards this week to be inserted in Labor Day care packages.
“Mail Call for our service men and women no longer resembles what is portrayed in war-movie scenes,” shared Tammy Broadway, Life Enrichment Coordinator at Carolina SeniorCare. “Many soldiers come from broken homes, foster care homes, or homes that are struggling to provide for other family members and they seldom receive mail or care packages. Operation Gratitude is a way to join forces with others to show acts of kindness and provide gratifying engagement for our participants.”
