Want to Make Someone’s Day? Sponsor a Care Package!

Operation Slipper
May is Military Appreciation Month and to celebrate, we launched a new program to provide our supporters an opportunity to personally “Sponsor” Operation Gratitude Care Packages.

With your tax-deductible donation of $20, $30, $50, $75, $100, $250 or $500 or more, you can send special care packages to our Military, personalized with your name on a beautiful card inside the packages.

You can even receive your own gift(s) as a “Thank You” from Operation Gratitude.

What kind of difference will your financial donation make to Operation Avenger Deployment Photos - Batch 13 003Gratitude?

Read this letter written by a care package recipient to understand the impact you will have:

“I sit in my office in a land far away and am simply speechless at your kindness and generosity. It truly brings tears to my eyes that you all would take the time to send package after package to deployed troops around the world. Sometimes it’s hard to find words to inspire and motivate troops to get out and put themselves in the face of the enemy daily. After all the care packages received this week from your organization my job as a First Sergeant is a little easier. My words to them this morning were simple…’We push forward because Americans are behind us and we can’t let them down!’ I love you all!! 1SG J.D.”

Remember: It is never too late to say “Thank you” to our Heroes!

    I am a Proud Military Mom, Military wife, Military Sister. Our colors are true to serve. I saw where you were offering tshirts while they last. If you have run short. I could make some and ship to you. I have a small town shirt business. .
    God’s peace and thank you for what you do.
    Merry Christmas
