Community Association Manager, Matt Walker spent the last month collecting items at the Country Club of Mount Dora to send to Operation Gratitude, an organization that gives back to the military and first responders.
Matt posted flyers and sent e-blasts to members of the community, and announced at committee meetings to get the word out about the collection and was able to receive several donations.
“The residents of the Country Club of Mount Dora and myself are grateful for the service and sacrifices of our military and first responders. Their hard work and dedication often go unrecognized. We hope our donation improves the experience for those that protect and serve all Americans. It really is our pleasure to offer a small token of appreciation and thanks,” Matt explained.
The “wish list” items included batteries, socks, playing cards, and other travel sized items. Monetary donations along with letters of appreciation were also accepted.
Operation Gratitude is an organization that sends care packages to deployed troops around the world, as well as for wounded heroes and caregivers and veterans. Since 2003, Operation Gratitude along with their volunteers have shipped over 2 million care packages to active troops.
