Send Military Gifts this Veterans Day with Operation Gratitude

military gifts from Hickory FarmsIt has been more than 90 years since President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 to be Armistice Day. Originally commemorating the end of World War I and the soldiers who fought in it, the holiday was later renamed Veterans Day and has come to be a celebration of all Armed Forces veterans who have served our country.

With Veterans Day approaching, it’s the perfect time to say ‘Thank you’ to the brave men and women of the United States military. Here at Hickory Farms, we are proud to be working with Operation Gratitude to bring a smile to the faces of our troops.

Support Our Troops with Military Packages (Operation Gratitude)

Send military gifts to our soldiers this holiday season.

 For our military men and women deployed to hostile regions, the hardship lies not just in physical danger and the lack of material comfort; there’s also the loneliness of being away from friends and family, of being far from home in an unfamiliar country.

“You may not realize, but it makes a big difference in our day-to-day lives to know that through everything that is going on there are still people back home that care about our well-being…”

The quote above comes from a letter addressed to Operation Gratitude by one of the many U.S. service members who have received a care package from the organization. Each year, more than 100,000 military care packages are assembled by Operation Gratitude and shipped to soldiers and their children, as well as our country’s wounded warriors, veterans and first responders.

With a mission to lift morale and express appreciation for the sacrifices of our U.S. Armed Forces, Hickory Farms is proud to support Operation Gratitude. In addition to our gifts for soldiers, our employees also volunteer with the organization. One of our Facebook fans recently left us the nicest message about the Hickory Farms volunteers she met while volunteering with Operation Gratitude in Van Nuys, California:

“When I volunteered for Operation Gratitude today, I was blessed to volunteer with and get to know a few of Hickory Farms’ amazing employees. These employees were hard working, happy, community-friendly Americans who were there with a smile to work for and support our troops. All of these employees made me love Hickory Farms all the more.”  -Janette M. Isaacs
