Scarves for Our Troops - Handmade with Love

-A A +A

If you love to knit or crochet, if you have extra yarn, if you would love to be involved in a gratifying volunteer opportunity, if you would like to support our people in the military, then this message is for you!

Operation Gratitude sends care packages with donated items (entertainment, hygiene, snacks) to our troops. A lovingly handmade scarf is also included in every package during the winter months.  Every moment of time, talent and energy poured into a handmade item is an expression of deep appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our service members.

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry Team has completed 175 scarves during the past few months. If you would like to support our troops, check the basket at the lower entrance for information. You are also encouraged to send a personal note if you wish. Children in our church school are also going to write notes to attach to the scarves. It is the mission of Operation Gratitude to thank every American who serves. To date 2,137,920 Care Packages have been sent!
