Charlottesville Retirement Community Sends Warmth to Troops
Residents of a Charlottesville retirement community are making sure soldiers overseas are bundled up this winter. The women from The Independence are knitting scarves to send to troops as a way to say “thank you” for their service.
It's part of Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends care boxes to soldiers.
The women say the scarves are special because they are handmade with love and care.
"[It’s] something to remind them of home and especially something that is handmade,” Sandra Dieter says. “I hope they'll appreciate it because we are making them in appreciation for what they are doing for us."
The women are also attaching special notes to the scarves. They will be shipped to the troops December 1.
