Operation Gratitude is a non-profit national organization whose mission is to thank every American who serves our country. One of their projects is sending Care Packages to Troops, Veterans, New Recruits and First Responders. Included in every package is a bundle of letters from American people thanking them for their service to our country.
The Groton Woman’s Club participates in this effort by sending annual thank you cards. Each member of the GWC personalizes her card with a brief note of appreciation. The cards are then sent to the national organization which distributes them as appropriate. GWC send approximately 50 -65 cards annually.
One card per department is also sent to the Groton police, firefighters and EMTs, our local first responders.
