This time of year, there are many reminders to be grateful to the men and women who serve, or have served, our country. Many of us at Markon Solutions have personal reasons to feel this gratitude year-round, but as we’re here in June, right between Memorial Day and Independence Day, let’s band together and celebrate a Month of Gratitude.
In June and July, I'll be sharing info with the Markon team about events and opportunities through which we can demonstrate our gratitude throughout the year—and please feel free to send thoughts or recommendations that you might have!
To kick it all off, we invite you to help us in supporting Operation Gratitude – an organization that fills care packages for troops, veterans, and first responders. Please support this cause by bringing items to HQ, where Krissy Goff will be collecting them.
Wish list items can be found here, and include:
- Hand Warmers
- Jerky (Individual Bags)
- Lip Balm
- Pencils (Mechanical preferred)
- Playing Cards
- Puzzle Books (7″x10″ preferred size)
- Sewing Kits (Travel Size)
- Socks (Black Crew Length)
- Knit or Crocheted Scarves and Hats
- Cool Ties
- Paracord Survival Bracelets
These can also be supplemented with any letters you might want to send to bring cheer to our troops.
Thank you for helping us to give back to those who have given us so much – and be on the lookout for more ways to be involved this month!
