Operation Thank You

Operation Thank YouThe vision of this U. S. Veteran’s and Service Personnel Thank You is to provide the community with an opportunity to personally thank U. S. Veterans and current U. S. Military Service personnel, through both their donation to this effort and through the contribution of personal supplies that will be sent to U.S. military personnel currently serving overseas.

“Thank you” cards will be supplied at the 4thFest, for people wishing to participate, by donating $1.00 per signature or $10.00 per card. The money from this effort will be used to pay for the shipment of packages to current overseas U. S. military personnel.

The Operation Thank You booth will be located on Curtin road between the BJC and Beaver Stadium. Please bring your donations to the booth on the Fourth of July and help us thank the service men and women serving on this national holiday. Bring any item listed on this page and we will package and send to our troops serving overseas.
