What if one click could enhance a Veteran or service member’s life? This November, we teamed with Operation Gratitude to make that happen.
Thanks to thousands of grateful Americans like you, the posts received 113,269 "likes." We are humbled by the tremendous support for this campaign. Now, Veterans United will gift $120,000 to Operation Gratitude to help ship 8,000 care packages to deployed troops and Veterans this holiday season!
Operation Gratitude is one of the largest nonprofits in the country for hands-on volunteerism in support of Military, Veterans, and First Responders. Since 2003, the organization has delivered more than 2.4 Million Care Packages and has provided opportunities for countless Americans to forge strong bonds with their Military and First Responder heroes through volunteer service projects, acts of gratitude, and meaningful engagements in communities nationwide.
The care packages include donated entertainment, handmade items, personal letters of support, hygiene products, snacks, and more. Each package costs $15 to ship, funded entirely by donations.
