Volunteer with Your Company

Partner with Operation Gratitude to organize a customized employee engagement event at the location of your choice.

These hands-on volunteer events bring teams together in service and gratitude to share their appreciation for our nation’s heroes. Operation Gratitude programs are perfect for team-building, corporate outreach programs and social responsibility service projects. We have programs available for both in-person and virtual events.

Testimonial Highlights

Partnering with Operation Gratitude has allowed our employees to complete hundreds of positive volunteer activities helping our military members, veterans and their families in an easily implementable and thoughtful way. The highlight has been hearing the impact that care kits make for our soldiers. Knowing our work is making their lives better, makes our day.

The organization’s commitment to those who serve our country and ability to pivot to meet changing needs has enabled us to find new ways to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.

Not only did Operation Gratitude help to ensure the project went smoothly, they also supported the events with members from their own team who were able to share the impact of Operation Gratitude directly with our employees.

Our Programs

Paracord Lanyards

Hand-crafted paracord lanyards are a functional and meaningful part of every one of our Care Packages. Crafting a lanyard takes less than ten minutes, making it a very scalable program and ideal for virtual volunteerism and in person gatherings.

Care Kits

Care Kits contain an assortment of hygiene items that are assembled by employees at your location then sent to Operation Gratitude to be included in our final Care Packages. These Care Kits can be customized by the sponsor to include sponsor branded stickers or small branded item(s) such as lip balm.

Battalion Buddies

Battalion Buddies are sweet and cuddly stuffed bears sent to comfort the children of our nation’s deployed troops. Employees stuff and dress these meaningful bears during your event then return them to Operation Gratitude for final distribution.

Care Packages

Operation Gratitude’s signature engagement activity, groups assemble and complete Care Packages containing all items needed to share a token of gratitude to deployed Troops, First Responders, Veterans, and Recruit Graduates.

Letter Writing

Handwritten letters are the most cherished items in our Care Packages. We strive to include several personal letters in every Care Package we send. This program can be scaled to fit your event making it ideal for both in person and virtual events.

Collection Drive

Our Care Packages are filled with donated items from American citizens and businesses. Show your support by organizing a collection drive with your employees. Collection drives can be hosted virtually or in person!
