Virtual Volunteerism

Operation Gratitude

  • 54 people are interested

All of our volunteerism is virtual due to the current coronavirus crisis. You can participate in all of our projects at your own home and send them to Operation Gratitude!

Because our Deployed Troops and First Responders can’t stop, we won’t stop!

Join us as we continue to give back and say "Thank You" to all who serve by volunteering virtually from home.

Our #VirtualVolunteerism campaign will allow every American the opportunity to support Deployed Troops, National Guardsmen, First Responders, and Emergency Medical Personnel on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are writing letters, knitting, crocheting and sewing handmade items and making paracord bracelets. For more information, please visit the link below.


How This Helps Our Community

Our response to COVID-19 is a call to action for #VirtualVolunteerism, and we are providing 3 ways for you (and your family) to give back from your own home.

During this global pandemic, Operation Gratitude will continue to meet the ever-changing needs of our care package recipients. Join us to demonstrate that actions do speak louder than words and show our COVID-19 First Responders that as long as they continue to serve, we will continue to support them

You can send your donation in to:
Operation Gratitude
9409 Owensmouth Avenue
Chatsworth, CA 91311

  • Please be sure to fill out the online Donor Form and follow the instructions that will be emailed to you, upon completion.

This is our opportunity for action!

To forge strong bonds between Americans and their Military and First Responder heroes through volunteer service projects, acts of gratitude, and meaningful engagements in communities nationwide.


Every year, Operation Gratitude sends 300,000+ individually addressed Care Packages to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen deployed overseas, to their children left behind, and to First Responders, New Recruits, Veterans, Wounded Heroes, and their Care Givers.

Through Collection Drives, Letter Writing Campaigns, Craft Projects, and Care Package Assembly Events, Operation Gratitude provides civilians anywhere in America a way to say "Thank You" through active, hands-on volunteerism.

Each package contains donated products valued between $45 and $100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship.
