OPERATION TROOP APPRECIATION
March 2, 2011
I have been a volunteer for OTA for 5 years now in the capacity of collecting donations for "wish list items" and signatures for holiday cards and thank you cards for our troops at various functions in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have also donated DVD's, blankets, and toiletries to be packaged and sent to the troops. It has been such an inspiration talking to families that have someone overseas in the service, or have been there themselves and have received packages from OTA. They are so appreciative and can't thank you enough. The letters OTA has received from thankful recipients is overwhelming. Just to think how OTA has grown is remarkable in itself.
