Founded in 2003 on the principle that our troops must believe that someone at home cares about them as an individual, Operation Gratitude forges 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. Each package contains snacks, hygiene products, entertainment, and handmade items, as well as personal letters of support.
Your donation supports the Care Packages (each contains donated products valued $45-$100 and costs Operation Gratitude $15 to assemble and ship) in addition to programs that provide civilians everywhere in the United States to say “thank you” through active, hands-on volunteerism.
