About Operation Gratitude
Operation Gratitude annually sends 250,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene products, handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, individually-named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas, Wounded Heroes and their caregivers.
Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our First Responder, Active Duty, and Veteran communities. We also seek to provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation for these heroes.
Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1,500,000 care packages.
Each package contains donated product valued at $75-100, and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship.
