Operation Gratitude Fourth Annual Holiday Drive

Organization to send 50,000 Care Packages to Support the Troops

During the Veteran's Day Weekend, November 11- 12, Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization, will kick off its Fourth Annual Holiday Drive, to assemble and mail over 50,000 care packages to deployed troops for the Holidays.

Operation Gratitude's mission is to put a smile on a service member's face, lift morale, and express the appreciation of the American people for the sacrifices of the men and women defending our freedom.

Beginning November 11, Operation Gratitude's more than 1000 volunteers, along with stars from Hallmark Channel's upcoming holiday movies, will assemble and ship at least 50,000 Holiday Care Packages filled with Flash Drives, Sports Calling Cards, DVDs and CDs, Candy, Gum, Cough Drops, Cookies, Hand Warmers, Skin Care Products, Coffee and Flavorings, Greeting Cards, Batteries, Energy Drinks, T-Shirts, Socks and assorted Snacks.

Our troops are sacrificing their time, talents and safety to insure that we live safe here in our homeland. Why not sacrifice buying that tie for Uncle Fred (that Uncle Fred will never wear anyway) on their behalf?
