Dr. Jill Biden has been working with Operation Gratitude to put together care packages for our troops overseas, but her efforts were met with a mixed response…
And her latest collaboration with Operation Gratitude shows just how dedicated she is to her new role.
Sharing a photo of the pair in their Delaware home, she wrote:
“He will be a president for all of our families.”
And noting how refreshing it is to have an “actual American family” win the presidency.
The Bidens are undeniably very different to the Trumps…
And, in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning back in August, the future first lady detailed just how different the White House will be under a Biden rule.
Biden, who is currently a full-time English professor at Northern Virginia Community College, previously said:
“If we get to the White House, I’m gonna continue to teach. It’s important, and I want people to value teachers and know their contributions, and lift up the profession.”
Historian Katherine Jellison, a professor at Ohio University who studies first ladies, told CBS News that Dr. Biden would be the only first lady to hold a paid job and first to have a doctorate degree.
She’ll advocate for free community college tuition, funding for cancer research, and support for military families, as she did in her role as the second lady.
On Thursday, she attended her first solo event since the election. And people had mixed reactions…
Helping to assemble care packages for U.S. troops who will be overseas for Christmas.
The packages were filled with various items, such as snacks, candy, and even handwritten letters of gratitude.
Who was recently announced as the president-elect’s nominee for secretary of defense.
“Today is part of a multi-day effort in DC and Los Angeles to pack a total of twenty-thousand packages. Each package contains snacks, candy, ten handwritten letters of gratitude, and hand-knitted scarfs from more than 1 million volunteers nationwide.”
Twenty-thousand care packages are being prepared to ship to troops with help from Veterans United Home Loans and CSX to thank those serving over in the Middle East, South Pacific, Europe, and aboard the U.S. Naval vessels.
Sent to deployed troops, veterans, military families, first responders, and healthcare professionals.
Responding to her tweet, Operation Gratitude thanked her for getting involved. “Thank you so much Dr. Biden for joining us today to assemble holiday care packages for deployed troops. Dr. Biden called on ‘all Americans to commit to an act of kindness’ and you can do so today through [virtual volunteerism].”
During Joe Biden’s time as vice president, Dr. Biden teamed up with Michelle Obama to launch “Joining Forces” to help veterans and their families.
Putting together care packages for the families of wounded soldiers.
“It’s the small acts of kindness that make a difference to the military and their families. I hope when you go back to your colleges and communities you continue this kind of service.”
“As the United States works to advance human rights around the world, we must also recognize that our task begins here at home. My administration is committed to ensuring every person is free to flourish in a society that values and defends equal justice for all,” the president-elect wrote on social media. Dr. Biden added: “Protect the marginalized. Protect the vulnerable.”
