Operation Gratitude

In partnership with Operation Gratitude‘s Halloween Candy Give-Back Program to deliver excess sweets to Military & First Responders, Oakwood K-12 students were excited to make a contribution to help support those who put themselves at risk to ensure our liberties.

Check out 4th grade in the photos below, who collected the most candy among the elementary grades, helping load in the collection!

It has been great for our young students to feel a small sense of sacrifice (not easy to give away that candy!) and understand on a level what it means for those who do so at great measure on a daily basis. It was especially meaningful to donate on Veterans Day and have the coincidence of a flyover as we were getting ready to take our group photo!
