January Days of Service
posted on Dec 24 2010 0 Comments
In honor of the “National Day of Service” we are opening the Operation Gratitude facility in Van Nuys, CA to all volunteers (12 years and older) for two special days:
Saturday January 15, 2011 from 9am to 4pm
Monday January 17, 2011 from 9am to 4pm
Both days will entail labeling packages, prep work, sorting, logging in, inventory, storing product for the spring and clean-up. Snacks and water will be available; please bring your own sack lunches if you plan to stay all day.
We have a lot of work to do, so join us on both days if possible! Please email us at [email protected] to let us know if you will join us (include “Operation Gratitude” in the subject line). Groups are welcome–please be sure to tell Penny how many people in your group.
In addition, we need volunteer help during the week all through January. Regular schedule will be in effect: Monday and Friday from 9-4 and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 12-4.
The full schedule for the spring Patriotic Drive, 2011 will be posted in January.
2010 was a very productive year–let’s rally one more time to ensure that every service member whose name we receive can get one of our packages, and to prepare the armory for another year of our activities! Your efforts and dedication will bring smiles to thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed far from home, in harm’s way.
YOU are making a difference!
