A Nationwide Network of Volunteers

Our job is to support them

At Operation Gratitude, we receive emails from across the country every day asking how people can get involved in their own communities:

“I’m interested in learning more about ways my family can be involved helping military veterans and families in our area…” -A.S., Maryland

“I have never served in the Armed Forces, however I have friends who have and I would like to do my part to thank those who have served and those who are currently serving…” -M.R., California

“I would like to volunteer my time to your organization…” -B.D., Indiana

Our thanks to all who have spoken up and offered to do more for our cause. We have listened and have launched a major new initiative for Operation Gratitude: A nationwide volunteer network of Ambassadors to serve our cause.

Our Ambassadors will: 

  • Represent Operation Gratitude at local community gatherings
  • Encourage and guide volunteer activities in their hometowns
  • Be local resources to individuals, groups, companies, community officials and media
  • Plan and implement letter writing campaigns, product donation drives, fundraisers and other activities
  • Participate as members of a national advisory group to suggest ideas, thoughts and feedback as new programs are developed
  • And much more

If you are interested in participating as an Operation Gratitude Ambassador in your area, please sign up to receive more information.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our cause. 

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 250,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation to Veterans, New Recruits, First Responders, Wounded Heroes, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty, Veteran and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to say "Thank You" to members of our Military. Each package contains donated product valued at $75-100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.5 Million Care Packages.

  4. Hey there, OG!
    Just a quick FYI, which you may not be able to see on your end:

    For some reason, your gravatar (which has always been your very distinctive banner) is now gone. When you comment /like/etc.,.. the only thing I see is just the default “dummy” gravatar. And it’s only your gravatar that I’ve noticed with this, so it’s not my computer.

    Just wanted you to be aware.

    All the best, and keep doing what you guys do over here!
