During Rainmaker’s recent offsite event in Nashville, Tennessee, Rainmakers from all over the country had the pleasure of volunteering for an organization called Operation Gratitude. We chose this impactful organization not only because we wanted an opportunity to give back as a team, but because the nonprofit’s noble mission is to thank America’s military personnel. This mission hits close to home for several Rainmakers who have family members who serve or served in the past.
At Rainmaker, we wanted a way to express how grateful we are for the brave men and women who have put their lives on the line to protect us and our country.
Saying Thank You
Operation Gratitude was founded in 2003 to meet the emotional and physical needs of U.S. Military and First Responder personnel, and to provide volunteer opportunities for Americans who wish to thank all who serve. The organization aims to let troops know that even though they are not home, they are still in our hearts and minds.
Each year, Operation Gratitude assembles and ships over 250,000 individually-addressed letters and care packages to soldiers deployed overseas. Kits typically contain a variety of items, such as hygiene products, snacks, entertainment, and letters of support.
During our offsite event, Rainmakers spent two hours putting together thoughtful care packages. We supplied the contents for each box, and team members included personalized notes for each recipient. Our care kits included items such as body wipes, razors, deodorant, hand sanitizer, lotion, mouthwash, and nail clippers.
During our volunteer time, we were able to assemble 20 packages and write 20 letters for our military personnel.
At Rainmaker, we were proud to support an organization like Operation Gratitude that is dedicated to giving back. The nonprofit has shipped over two million care packages to those who serve, and we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to their efforts.
We place tremendous value on giving back to our community, and we look forward to taking part in similar opportunities in the future!
