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

Description

WHO WE ARE

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.

This event was so much fun! we got there early to set up the booth and Jack kept me laughing the entire time. I manned the booth during the event which included getting people excited about writing letters to our troops as well as taking the donations and selling merchandise. The only tough part was the overwhelming emotions coming from people who have loved ones who served. Hearing their touching stories made working the event that much more fulfilling and memorable.

This organization has been very helpful and useful. It truly allows you to learn and help others from this great experience. I can also see that this organization is passionate for what they do. I would definitely volunteer again and recommend to a friend.

This is an excellent operation; the service they provide to our service members is fantastic. Right now they need lots of help for the upcoming shipment to our heroes.
