DROP OFF LOCATION
Bring thank-you letters, gift cards or wishlist items to Stymeist Collision Centers in Placerville or Jackson.
We’ll put together care packages and deliver them to members of the U.S. Military by way of Operation Gratitude.
Operation Gratitude has sent over 2 million care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes and their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home.
Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support.
"Hello, I would like to thank you for such a wonderful surprise package. I had a lot of fun reading all the letters and makes me feel like there are other people who care for what we do day to day. Once again thank you for the awesome gifts. God bless America."
