Operation Gratitude

Altadena BSA Troop 1 joined ~1200 other community volunteers to prepare and ship ~7000 care packages containing toiletries, letters, and candy to active duty service men. A letter was read at the beginning about a serviceman who was overjoyed to receive his first care package and only correspondence for over four months. Everyone agreed we should do this again next year. For photos from the event, check out our Facebook Group Albums for Altadena Troop 1.
