Many thanks to everyone who contributed to Operation Comfort. Your generosity will enable Operation Comfort to continue their valuable work towards making the transition home easier for wounded veterans.
We announced our support of Operation Comfort in our May 13 newsletter and immediately began receiving donations from our generous customers. Then just before Memorial Day, we sent a letter to our vendors requesting donations of money or supplies to Operation Comfort's Automotivation program. Many of our vendors happily obliged.
