GET OUR USPS SHIP FROM HOME GUIDE

  • Thank you for understanding that Operation Gratitude cannot pay for shipping donations to our facility, as we need every penny of our funds to pay the cost of sending Care Packages to the Troops and all who serve: $15/package.
  • Use a durable, heavy-duty box and pack with appropriate weight for that box.
  • Do not exceed 50 lbs. per box.
  • To protect your item donations in the event of box damage during transit, we suggest lining your box with a plastic bag and sealing it to prevent damage from moisture.
  • Use the most economical method from your location. You can check the websites of the various shippers (UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL) and get their respective prices based on weight and size of package. Some of these outlets may be allowed to offer discounts, as they are owned as franchises.
  • You can try contacting local moving or freight companies; they may be willing to add your donation to their load for free or low cost if they are heading towards our headquarters.
  • If funds for shipping are an issue, you can check with local Veterans’ groups and/or civic organizations (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, etc.) to see if any would partner with you to cover the shipping.
  • We will send you a thank you letter within 8 weeks. If you want confirmation of delivery of your shipment(s) sooner, please use the tracking system provided by your shipper.
