We served lunch at Operation Gratitude

On 10.15.2011, the Chatsworth Kiwanis, Crespi Key Club, and Chatsworth Key Club joined at Operation Gratitude and served lunch and drink to around 350 volunteers. Big thanks to Los Toros Mexican Restaurant for the food. Operation Gratitude seeks to put a smile on a service member's face & express our nation's appreciation by sending care packages & letters personally addressed to U.S. Military deployed in harm's way, their children left behind and Wounded Warriors recovering in transition units.

Operation Gratitude annually sends 100,000+ care packages filled with snacks, toiletries, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed in harm's way, to their children left behind, and to Wounded Warriors recovering in transition units. Our mission is to lift morale, bring a smile to a service member's face and express to our Armed Forces the appreciation and support of the American people. Operation Gratitude receives the names of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines from commanders in the field who see the positive impact of care packages on their troops' morale. Each package contains donated product valued at ~$125 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. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude has shipped more than 750,000 packages to American Military deployed overseas.

Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, volunteer-based organization.
