Take Time to Say "Thank You"

Supporting A Million Thanks for NMAM

MillionThanksMay is designated National Military Appreciation Month (NMAM), which recognizes the sacrifices and courage of those who serve, including spouses and military families. To honor our country’s service members, we’re undertaking several unique and impactful initiatives throughout the month. Chief among them is our partnership with A Million Thanks.

THEIR MISSION

A Million Thanks is a nonprofit organization that sends thank-you letters to service members all over the world. They’ve sent more than 7.6 million letters to date, each containing a positive, uplifting message of support. Their goal is to provide encouragement and express gratitude to the men and women of the Armed Forces who put their own lives on the line to keep our country safe.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We at Pioneer Services would like to invite you to participate. We have offices in select military markets that have all been designated as official drop-off locations with collection boxes and letter templates available to the public during regular business hours.
