Holding a Collection Drive for Operation Gratitude is a great way to show support for our troops and veterans, and it’s something you can do to support the troops no matter where you live!
Need some tips?
1. Start by choosing the dates, times and location of your collection.
2. Get the word out in your community — family, friends, co-workers and classmates can all help you publicize your event via flyers, social media, newsletters, blogs and by good old-fashioned word of mouth! (Sign-up here to receive a “social media tool kit” with ideas for sample posts and tweets.)
3. Specify what items from our “Wish List” you want to collect. If you want to narrow down the choices, we can ALWAYS use Beanie Babies, travel-size hygiene items, decks of playing cards and letters of thanks!
4. Consider collecting items to RECYCLE to help us raise the funds needed to assemble and ship our care packages! Check out GRC Wireless for information about recycling old cell phones — it’s a “win-win” for the environment and the troops!
