South Cobb Regional Library, Lewis A. Ray Library, Powder Springs Library and Vinings Library invite you to participate in a Martin Luther King Service project, Operation Gratitude. Say “Thank You” to deployed troops, new recruits, veterans, first responders, and wounded heroes and their caregivers through our collection drive from January 15 – January 29th. Come in and drop a letter or card in the collection box.

The mission of Operation Gratitude 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. Your letter or card will be mailed to Operation Gratitude to be included in care packages to our heroes.
