One Bus, One Cause: Operation Gratitude

December 8th, 2013

Location: 17330 Victory Boulevard Los Angeles California 91406
Duration: Single Day
Date: Dec 8, 2013

For some soldiers, a letter is the only contact they have with home. The UCLA Volunteer Center has a goal of sending 3,000 hand-written letters and care packages to military service members and veterans each year, in partnership with Operation Gratitude, a non-profit group based in Van Nuys, CA. All five branches of the military are sent letters: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.
r Operation Gratitude is celebrating their March to a Million that weekend, and they need some blue and gold assistance with the huge event. This is a giant milestone for the non-profit; Operation Gratitude is the first military support organization to accomplish such a feat!
r Food, transportation, and all needed supplies will be provided; all you need is an open heart and willing-to-get-dirty hands! Please note: This project will require a lot of physical activity to navigate the base, breakdown carnival games and activities, sweep/rake/clean, and more. No projects will be too heavy or strenuous, but volunteers are encouraged to only do what they feel they can physically handle. Sign up at to save your spot.
