Operation Gratitude

Help us support our Troops, Veterans & First Responders this Fall!

The United Way of Otero County in partnership with Mountain View Dental will be collecting left over candy, dental kits and cards & letters written to active duty military, veterans and first responders. We are working with Operation Gratitude whos mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the U.S. Military and First Responder communities and provide volunteer opportunities for Americans to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation.

How Can I Help?

  • Donate chocolate and non-chocolate candy
  • Write a letter or card to a veteran or active duty military member
  • Donate individually packaged toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss or chapstick
  • Donate money to help ship the packages to Operation Gratitude (It cost between $45 & $55 per box)

Donations should be dropped off at our office no later than November 11th.
