We invite the community to help honor our armed services on Veterans Day by bringing leftover candy, beanie baby’s, and letters to our troops. We invite friends and family to participate.
Dr. Hurley and her staff are personally involved in a number of community service projects. During the Halloween season, the office participates in Operation Gratitude that collects candy and beanie babies for the American troops. She also collects letters written by the scouts, students in high school and anyone else that wants to write a letter. These letters mean so much to the soldiers when they are away from home. She has been so successful in involving the community that she has collected over three thousand pounds of candy and over 5000 beanie babies and 600 letters. Local Girl Scout troops and the Key Club from the high school helped with the project.
A Letter of Thanks
Thank you for your package and support. It does encourage my troops and me when we get care packages from the states. I have been here for 9 months and the beanie babies help me know what I am fighting for. I have 3 kids and when I go to my tent to sleep it is right there to help me get through the long days knowing my family and friends are safe.
Thank you and God bless.
Even in spite of Hurricane Sandy, Operation Gratitude was successful on a smaller scale. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Troop 204 Long Hill Township Girl Scouts and the Bernards High School Key Club. These organizations collected 100 pounds of candy, 537 beanie babies, and 1200 letters to our troops. Thank you!
