May 2021 – Military Appreciation Month

Turtle Cares is connecting Houston students with active-duty military through our pen pal program. Students write appreciation letters, Ossy pairs them with goodie bags, and they are shipped to our troops who are not allowed to come home in compliance with Federal COVID protocols. This grassroots effort started with Memorial Elementary students in Houston, which has a rich military history itself. In the future, Turtle Cares looks forward to engaging additional Huston schools in our “Notes to Active-duty Military” program.
