Greetings from the Armory!
On behalf of Operation Gratitude and the Military recipients of our care packages, I thank you for your generous donation. Your 'in-kind contribution' will enable us to send over 100,000 chock-full Care Packagesthis year to the tens of thousands of brave men and women still deployed overseas in harsh and remote areas; to their children anxiously awaiting their return; and to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors and their Care Givers.
With the help of supporters nationwide since 2003, we have sent more than 1.1 Million Operation Gratitude Care Packages containing snacks, hygiene products, entertainment and hand-made items, and personal letters from appreciative Americans. These expressions of love and concern from fellow citizens offer our Military and Veterans a much-deserved "Thank You For Your Service" and are always greeted with enthusiasm and great appreciation.
As one Private First Class wrote:
"It's Christmas morning over here in Kuwait, and your box is the only present I got to open today and let me tell you -- I was all smiles and teared up a couple times with what those wonderful, beautiful kids wrote. It's hard being away from my wife and two daughters but your words and gifts and support make it a little easier. I got so excited over the Beanie Baby and I LOVE the hand-knit scarf -- very touching. Please keep doing what you're doing. It means the world to all of us over here on this side of the world! And the individual label made it really heartfelt and special! I thank you very much for what you all do. God bless and Merry Christmas!"

Dear Kolb Families,
A member of our community was taken from us too soon. Herman Shum lost his life in an accident while cycling with a group of people the morning of December 27th. He is survived by his wife Janelle and their two children. Herman’s daughter Nicole was a student at Kolb. She graduated 5th grade during the 2013-2014 school year. Herman was a Vice Principal in Berkley and was slated to start a new job as Principal in Napa at the start of the 2015 school. A memorial fund has been set up in Herman Shum’s name. Let’s show our support to a fellow Kolb family in their time of need.
Sign Up Genius is a free website for organizing volunteers. We are excited about using this new tool with our Kolb parent volunteers. It is a fantastic method for getting the word out about volunteer opportunities, events, teacher wish lists, class parties, or fundraiser coordination.
Check out our Volunteer page for more information on using Sign-Up Genius as well as for a list of volunteer opportunities available.
