Mission Statement

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.

Description

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. Each package contains snacks, hygiene products, entertainment, and handmade items, as well as personal letters of support.

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.

Would you recommend Operation Gratitude?

by Alexis O. (November 9, 2014)
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.
