      All the assembling and shipping of packages must take place at our headquarters in Van Nuys, CA for security purposes, but we work with supporters all over the country who organize collection drives for us to provide the items and letters for the packages. Please visit our website to learn ways you can be involved: http://www.operationgratitude.com/individuals-and-organizations/ Thank you!

      A whole lot of preparation work is necessary for us to be ready for an “assembly” day when we put together and ship several thousand care packages. So a “prep” day is when we sort and organize donations and get everything in order for upcoming assembly days. More questions? Please email [email protected] Thanks!
