"The more I reached out to the community, the more encouraged I became when local elementary and middle schools welcomed me into their classrooms. It was eye-opening to see how many students were unfamiliar with the daily sacrifices made by military families. In speaking with them, I encouraged students to write letters, and expressed the importance of showing appreciation to our troops."

THANK YOU, Toyota USA and Keyes Toyota! We LOVE our Toyota Tundra pickup truck! It's wonderful -- and it will be a huge help as we distribute care packages to veterans throughout Southern California. And isn't the truck's custom-designed wrap awesome? Thank you, Eric Nelson of Edge Design in Riverside! (LA-area friends: If you see this truck on the road, please post a photo and tag #OperationGratitude!)
