Operation Gratitude & Starbucks

Through our partnership, Operation Gratitude and Starbucks continue to build empathy and understanding between civilians and military service members through community events that deliver care packages to the military community. We’re uniting these communities to improve mental health outcomes, offer a sense of belonging, and foster enduring relationships.

Write Letters

Every letter of gratitude you write will be included in signature Operation Gratitude Care Packages that will be sent to Deployed Troops, Veterans, Wounded Heroes & Caregivers, First Responders and Healthcare Heroes.

Adopt a Unit

Starbucks is partnering with Operation Gratitude to “Adopt A Unit”, and every letter you write will be included in signature Operation Gratitude Deployed Troop Care Packages. For Military Appreciation Month we will assemble 5,000 care packages for deployed troops at the DC National Guard Armory. 

Host A Collection Drive

Our care packages are filled with items donated by American citizens and businesses. Gather your group of committed citizens and show support for our heroes by organizing a Collection Drive in your community.
