Salute to Kindness: Share a Message of Thanks with our Nation’s Heroes

There are lots of people we say thank you to every day —many out of habit and general politeness. But some don’t get nearly the thanks they deserve.

Otterbein is asking its community to take a moment to offer thanks to those who protect some of the ideals and freedoms we hold most dear.

Recognizing the selfless commitment of those who serve and protect the United States, student leaders from the Center for Community Engagement, Otterbein alumni and employees staffed card-writing stations during Otterbein’s 100th Homecoming. Volunteers were able to collect several hundred hand-written messages of thanks, kindness and gratitude to United States veterans and service members.

The card-writing effort continues on campus and even at the National Girl Scouts Convention for more notes of thanks from girls around the globe. here.

A Kindness Matters Tip:  To write a personal note of thanks, send your message by Nov. 3 to: otterbeinkindness@otterbein.edu.
