Operation Gratitude

Champion Logistics Group is proud to partner with Operation Gratitude over this 2012 holiday season. Our mission is to lift morale and express to our Military the appreciation and support of the American people by providing them care packages over the holiday season. To date, Operation Gratitude has sent over 850,000 care packages.

We invite you to join forces with Champion Logistics Group and assist Operation Gratitude with their "March to a Million" Care Package campaign.

Through these collection drives, Champion is delighted to work with your company in support of our brave U.S. Military service members and their families.

Champion Logistics Group will drop off a large Operation Gratitude box for you to place within your facility. This box should be used to collect donated items from your employees during the holiday season. Champion will pick up the box at a predetermined time and ship to Operation Gratitude for distribution to our service people.

The Care Packages contain an assortment of 50 or more items, including snack foods, scarves, entertainment items, small plush animals, personal care products as well as letters from caring people around the country. All donations are welcome but the most popular items are as follows.
