Operation Gratitude was founded in 2003 and has since delivered more than 2.3 million care packages to deployed troops, first responders, veterans, recruit graduates, wounded heroes and caregivers, and children of deployed troops.
A handful of candy is included in every care package sent, much of which is collected during the organization’s popular Halloween Candy Give-back campaign.
