About Operation Community
We are excited to announce that Operation Community is here! Grunt Style is committed to helping put more unity back into our Community! During this campaign we will be highlighting organizations and local heroes that have a positive impact on our community.
A Community hero is an individual or group who unselfishly contributes to a greater good through their actions, determination, and influence to make a difference in their community and country. These are hard-chargers, life-changers, coaches and mentors, healers and volunteers who wake up every day and choose to make the world a better place.
