Say “Thank You” to the men and women in our military as well as first responders by participating in Operation Gratitude. During Volleyball Marketplace hours the AVCA will have a designated area where coaches can send a Thank You card to military members, veterans and first responders. Every Operation Gratitude Care Package includes a letter or card thanking our military members, veterans and first responders for their service to our country. Care Package recipients often remark these letters and cards are among the most cherished items in their box and increase morale. Coaches are encouraged to spend a few minutes of their convention week writing a note of thanks to these deserving men and women.
