Charity Details: Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude (Tax ID 20-0103575) is the California-based 501 (c) (3) non-profit, volunteerĀ  based organization that annually sends 100,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed in hostile regions such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and on Naval ships at sea.

Our mission is to lift morale, bring a smile to a service member’s face and express to all our Armed Forces the appreciation and support of the American people. Each package contains donated product valued at ~$100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship. For safety and security, assembling of packages occurs at the Army National Guard armory in Van Nuys, California. By the end of 2010, Operation Gratitude will have shipped more than 600,000 packages to American Military deployed overseas.
