ORGANIZATION: Operation Gratitude

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Join CSX, Operation Gratitude, and the Waycross community to assemble 1,000 Battalion Buddies (stuffed bears) for the children of deployed service members across the country. This event is part of our CSX Pride in Service ongoing mission to thank military members and their families for their service.

Hundreds of thousands of Military children will experience the challenge of having a parent or guardian deployed or absent for an extended period of time. Operation Gratitude is on a mission to support as many of these amazing and resilient children as we can! Through this volunteer event, participants will have the opportunity to assemble 1,000 of Operation Gratitude’s Battalion Buddy teddy bears that will be delivered to the children of deployed troops nationwide. This year alone, CSX will be sponsoring the assembly and delivery of over 3,000 Battalion Buddies!

Interested individuals must register in advance to attend the event. Volunteers ages 10 and up are welcome.

Mission Statement

Honor the service of our Military and First Responders by creating opportunities to express gratitude



Operation Gratitude is one of the largest and most impactful nonprofits in the country for hands-on volunteerism in support of military, veterans, and first responders. In March of 2003, Operation Gratitude sent its first four care packages to deployed service members in Iraq. Since its inception, the organization has encouraged millions of Americans to express their gratitude through hands-on volunteerism, in turn lifting the spirits of more than 3.3 million deployed troops, recruit graduates, veterans, military families, first responders, and healthcare heroes. The volunteers of Operation Gratitude are a generous and spirited grassroots network of Americans joined in a common cause to say "Thank You" to all who serve our great nation.
