OPERATION GRATITUDE ASSEMBLY DAY
Join Operation Gratitude and CSX as we assemble 10,000 Care Pouches with the help of the Nashville community for local Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, and EMTs, as well as new Recruit Graduates from the U.S Navy and Air Force.
On Saturday, August 17, 2019, Operation Gratitude, in partnership with CSX Pride in Service, will bring together volunteers from the Nashville area to assemble 10,000 of our signature red Care Pouches.
The event is part of Operation Gratitude’s grassroots movement to forge strong bonds between grateful Americans and their Military and First Responder Heroes through volunteer service projects, acts of gratitude, and meaningful engagements in communities nationwide.
Each individual volunteer must register in advance to attend the event.
