Operation Gratitude

National Mother of the Year ®, Dianne Callister, recently took a youth group from her church to volunteer at "Operation Gratitude", an organization that sends Christmas packages to the soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.  On the particular day when Dianne and her group of volunteers were there, the organization packaged their 600,000 package...and it all started with a mom who cared and sent packages from her garage!  Currently, they use the California National Guard as their location to accommodate the large number of volunteers who help with the organization.
