The Gallery Collection Donates 7,500 Cards to the Operation Gratitude 1 Millionth Care Package Celebration

by Evangeline R. on November 19, 2013

The Gallery Collection has a long history of working with Operation Gratitude. So we were thrilled to donate 7,500 cards to the Operation Gratitude 1 Millionth Care Package Celebration occurring on December 7th, 2013. We’ve created 5,000 specially designed cards to thank everyone attending the celebration for their support of Operation Gratitude over the years.

We’ve also created 2,500 specially designed cards to be signed and sent in even more care packages to service men and women stationed overseas.

 

Thank You for Your Service Card

thanks for service

 

Operation Gratitude seeks to lift morale in the military community by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas, to their children left behind, and to Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors and their care givers. Operation Gratitude care packages contain food, hygiene products, entertainment and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.

The 1 Millionth Care Package Celebration is the culmination of a decade of hard work and dedication. To send so many card packages was no small feat, and this feat could not have been accomplished without the donations and volunteer efforts of so many people. This celebration marks not only the shipment of the 1 millionth care package; it is a celebration of everyone who made this moment possible.

God Bless you Gallery Collection. I thought i was doing something special each year by sending a Christmas card to an unknown military person. What you are doing goes far beyond. God Bless our military. But I wish they could all be home with theri families for Christmas.

It would be great if they could be home. But I’m sure a card brings them some holiday cheer.

I had never heard of Operation Gratitude so I googled them. What a great organization. Donations are tax deductible. Their site has a cute count down until Dec 7th when they will have sent 1,ooo,ooo care packages. There IS good in this world.

I am so happy to see The Gallery Collection support our Military. They risk their lives for this country.

The military is definetely taken for granted. We don’t realize how lucky we are. I happy to hear that the Gallery collection has taken a moment and supported them.
