    NEWSLETTERS

    Operation Gratitude annually sends 100,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of support, to Veterans, New Recruits, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.

    Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all citizens to express their appreciation to American heroes. Each package contains donated product valued at ~$100 and costs $15 to assemble and ship. Since 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.2 Million Care Packages.

    Join our dedicated and passionate volunteers in a daily hands-on grassroots effort to say "Thank You" to our Military and First Responders. Assemble care packages, make paracord bracelets and scarves, write letters--at our facility or your home. Opportunities for people of all abilities and backgrounds, ages 12 years and up.   To volunteer, click here.
