Operation Gratitude sends 100,000 care packages each year
filled with snacks, toiletries, entertainment items and personal letters of
appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members, their
children at home, veterans, wounded soldiers, and first responders. They are
hoping to include one of these paracord survival bracelets in each care package--instructions
are included on their web site here.
Operation Care Package
Operation Care Package is soliciting handmade items to send
to the troops. This statement on their web site says it all: "Nothing brings a
smile to a soldier's face like receiving something handmade from home!" Click
here to find patterns and instructions for how to make neck gators, cool
scarves, and Christmas stockings. They are also in need of handmade stocking
caps, quilts, and fleece blankets.
