CARE PACKAGES SENT SINCE 2003

action = impact on 9/11

On September 5th Operation Gratitude volunteers in New York City assembled 10,000 Care Packages for deployed Troops around the world and First Responders here at home. The impact is clear in the words of an Airman, who received one of those Care Packages on 9/11.

To all who work or volunteer with Operation Gratitude, 

My name is John and I’m in the Air Force, serving with my fellow Americans in the Middle East. Today is 9/11/2019, 18 years after the attack on our country changed the world as we know it. We’re missing our families and friends but know our work here matters to the world and for the safety of our nation. We received your care packages today- and the joy it brought to the faces of everyone I’m deployed with was just amazing. The letters of love brought tears to peoples’ eyes and knowing they’re remembered and cared for is a gift that is priceless to the soul. 

Today was my daughter’s first day of pre-school, and I was really in a low spot just missing her and all the special moments we won’t get to share this year because I’m away. This care package really lifted me up. Thank you so much, and if I could hug you all I would. 

It’s an honor to serve the greatest people in the world, people like you!  – J.B.

We need your help to send 75,000 Care Packages to deployed Troops, Veterans, Wounded Heroes and their Caregivers on Veterans Day, during the Holiday Season and through the end of the year.

In recognition of the 18th anniversary of 9/11 and a National Day of Service, our CEO, Kevin Schmiegel, and former U.S. Marshal, Patrick Burke, point to hands-on volunteerism as a way to say thank you to all who serve in this Military Times OpEd.

What are you DOING in a tangible way to remember 9/11, honor the fallen, and give back to those who serve?

The Care Package that was sent to me was very appreciated. From the toothpaste, hygiene items, and the snacks, I can tell you none of it went to waste. We are all so thankful to have awesome Americans back home who haven’t forgotten about us–people who take time out of their busy day to do something nice for others they will never meet or possibly ever hear from.”
