Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages to our Military.
Our mission is twofold: To lift spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and to provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military. To date, we have sent over One Million Care Packages.
Our Care Packages contain an assortment of 50 or more items, including snack foods, entertainment and hand-made items, small plush animals, personal care products, plus letters from caring adults and students around the country. The total value of the products included in each package is $75-100/per package…but what they offer is priceless!
All contents of the packages are donated by individuals and groups through collection drives, or by companies that donate their own products or employee-assembled “Care Kits.” Donated funds are used for production and shipping.
Our overall cost to send each package is $15.
Operation Gratitude is proud to have received a 5-Star rating and earned the Guide Star Exchange Seal demonstrating our commitment to transparency. The BBB Wise Giving Report issued October 2013 determined that we met all 20 standards for Charitable Accountability.
