Operation Gratitude annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, 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 and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation 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 One Million Care Packages.

    This Sunday we will be hosting an event in Midland County, MI

    We are doing a trunk or treat for our community and are also accepting donations for operation gratitude. I can’t find a place on your website to register as a drop spot. Is there any way to do this, or do we just do it and then send it in?

    Thank you for letting me know either way ASAP as the event is this coming Sunday 5:30-7:30pm.

    What are the things you’d most like to receive from us?

    I am so inspired by what Operation Gratitude does that I am going to dedicate my summer to raising funds to print as many copies of my joke book, Serving Up Some Leftovers, as I can possibly can – to send them to our troops. Car washes, bake sales, I’ve even considered a dog wash. What ever it takes. I’ll have every neighborhood child from the age of 9-15 helping (thanks to all my daughters friends). But I promise, I will be shipping a health dose of laughter to as many soldiers as I can, because I am on a mission to make the giggles echo, and I believe the laughter should start with our troops.
