Mission Statement

Operation Gratitude’s mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our First Responder, Active Duty, Veteran, and Wounded Hero communities. We also seek to provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation for these deserving Heroes through hands-on volunteerism, such as collection drives, letter writing campaigns, handcrafted "Made with Love" projects, and care package assembly events.

Description

Every year, Operation Gratitude sends 250,000+ individually-addressed care packages to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas and to their children left behind. Also, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Heroes and their caregivers. Each package contains food items, hygiene products, entertainment, handmade items, and handwritten letters of support.

Since its inception in March, 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have assembled and shipped more than 1,500,000 care packages.

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.
