The Troops are filled with THANKS… and so are we!

On Thanksgiving, we are mindful of our bountiful blessings and the many reasons we have to be thankful. We are grateful for our country’s Military, and we are grateful for YOU, our generous supporters and donors.

Thanks to YOUR help, we will send Operation Gratitude’s Millionth Care Package in a little Jover a week.

And thanks to your help, we receive many heartwarming emails like this one:

“I would like to extend my most sincere thanks for all that your organization is doing for our military members serving abroad.

“The unit I’m assigned to is currently serving in Afghanistan. It is the week of Thanksgiving and although we remain focused on and committed to the task at  hand, the Holidays will prove a challenging time for many. For some this is their first festive season away from loved ones, while others have experienced many. RB

“Regardless, your kindness and generosity is having an immediate and positive impact on all.

“Yesterday a number of ‘Goodie Boxes’ arrived in the mail addressed to our Soldiers. You would have thought the packages contained money!

“The atmosphere within the organization instantly lightened…truly amazing to witness. Only wish we could have captured the moment to share with the great people associated with Operation Gratitude.

“Please know that the selfless acts of kindness demonstrated by the members and volunteers on your Team are having an instant and profound impact on the members of ours!

“We can’t thank you enough for all of your support and we wish you a safe and happy Holiday Season.

Warmest regards,
TC M.S.B.”

AFLTC B. sums up our feelings and these words are worth repeating: “…we can’t thank you enough for all your support and we wish you a safe and happy Holiday Season.”

Please help us continue to have an “an instant and profound impact” on deployed Service Members, Veterans and Wounded Warriors. Every donation of $15 helps pay our assembly and shipping expenses to send another care package: Donate Today
