St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
Last month, Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC donated nine Beanie Babies, four pounds of candy, eight magazines, and 40 letters to Operation Gratitude – an organization that sends more than 100,000 care packages to United States services members. This includes men and women who have been deployed overseas, veterans, wounded warriors and first responders. Each package contains approximately $75 - $100 worth of products and costs about $15 to ship and assemble. Each package is assembled in Van Nuys, California at the Army National Guard armory. Since 2003, Operation Gratitude has given more than 915,000 care packages to U.S. service members.
This year, the attorneys at Meyerkord & Meyerkord showed their support by donating to Operation Gratitude. Their contribution will help the organization send more than 100,000 boxes. Over the years, Operation Gratitude has made a significant impact on the lives of men, women and children. One Private First Class said, “I cannot express to you how great it feels to come home after a long day of running missions to find a care package full of love sitting on your bunk. You are exhausted from wearing 50 plus pounds of armor for hours on end, then you open the package, see all that love, and are rejuvenated and ready to face the world again. I may sound small but it really does help enormously...Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
