Roxbury, NJ (December 15, 2016) – Our youngest students at Jefferson Elementary School made holiday cards for our servicemen and women overseas.

Barbara Kroog’s preschool class created different cards to be sent to Afghanistan to spread some holiday cheer!

“The children enjoyed making the cards and will be learning about different December holidays in the near future,” shared Kroog.

This project was presented to Jefferson School by Nancy Bottona, a paraprofessional with assistance from Pete Burke, Deputy Project Manager for Combat Ammunition Systems at Picatinny Arsenal.

More about Cards from Kids:

Time and time again, when we hear back from the troops who receive our care packages, they tell us much the same thing — how wonderful it is to hear from children:

  • “Received your lovely Operation Gratitude parcel today in Kandahar, Afghanistan.  Thank you very much for your kindness to the soldiers. It means so much to us. My favorites were the letters from the children. I have been a soldier for 28 years and have fought in many places. Despite all that, the children’s words always hit a hidden place in our hearts.  May God bless you richly in all you do.  V/R, SGM J.M.”
  • “You guys are truly awesome.  I’m happy I received a package from Operation Gratitude.  The letters from the school kids made me proud of serving my country….SPC D.C.”
  • “I cannot stress how important this organization is to everyone in the service and how incredibly thankful we are that there are people like you and all of your volunteers here to support us! The best things in any packages are the letters, especially the ones from the kids. Thank you again for all that you do. You guys are the true heroes!  SSgt K.S.”
