In an effort to brighten up the lives of the elderly and those in service, the National Honor Society is sponsoring a letter collection to support two charities, Love for the Elderly and Operation Gratitude. Love for the Elderly is a non-profit organization, devoted to providing seniors with the love and appreciation they deserve. Operation Gratitude has a mission of expressing gratitude to those who serve our country by providing Americans with the opportunity to share their appreciation. Through this service project, students and faculty are encouraged to write simple, yet creative cards for the elderly and veterans, new recruits and first responders. This shows that a simple act of kindness can truly make an impact on someone's life!
