Ellie Mae Cares Volunteer Activity: Operation Gratitude

Sponsored by Wells Fargo Funding

Join Ellie Cares to help support our troops! Operation Gratitude’s mission is to forge strong bonds between Americans and their Military and First Responder heroes through volunteer service projects, acts of gratitude, and meaningful engagements in communities nationwide. By helping with the assembly of care packages, Operation Gratitude provides attendees a way to say “Thank You” through active, hands-on volunteerism. Help us assemble military care packages and add your own personal touches in the form of a personal letter to the recipients and we will drop these off at the homes of these deserving military heroes.
