Say Thank You To Our Troops!

It only takes a minute. Every Operation Gratitude Care Package includes a bundle of letters from the American people, thanking Troops, Veterans, New Recruits, or First Responders for their service to our country. Care Package recipients tell us these letters, notes, and drawings are the most cherished items in their box.
If you would like to set up an Operation Gratitude at a show or school event, please contact the NSBA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Help the youth reach their goal of sending 750 letters to go into care packages in 2018.
