Fifth graders in Ms. Laura-Ann Hazen and Ms. Michelle Orlando’s class at Landing Elementary School recently wrote letters to the U.S. Military and collected leftover Halloween candy to donate to Operation Gratitude.
Operation Gratitude seeks to lift spirits and meet the evolving needs of Active Duty and Veteran communities through care packages, letters of gratitude and other special services, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of the U.S. Military.
Ms. Hazen and Ms. Orlando’s class is on a mission to complete at least one act of kindness a month for the 2019-2020 school year.
