Community Outreach Committee Project


Honoring our Active Military on Veterans Day at the WDS Fall Meeting!

For our fall community outreach event, the Wisconsin Dermatological Society (WDS) is partnering with an organization called Operation Gratitude, a nation-wide nonprofit providing Americans with opportunities to honor our Military, Veterans and First Responders through hands-on volunteerism. In March 2003, Operation Gratitude sent its first four Care Packages to deployed service members in Iraq. Since then, the nonprofit has successfully provided opportunities for millions of Americans to express their appreciation through hands-on volunteerism, and has honored more than 3.5 million Deployed Troops, Recruit Graduates, Veterans, Military families, and First Responders.

The WDS has raised funds and collected supplies for Care Packages that will be sent to active military. At our social event following the Fall Meeting, we will work together to assemble the kits and write notes of gratitude.
