Mission Accomplished: Power Crunch Proudly Partners with Operation Gratitude
By Alyssa Bliss, Community Marketing Coordinator
One of our employees’ favorite aspects of working at Power Crunch is the chance to participate in giving back to our community! From spending time with the amazing kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of America to preparing packages for our troops with Operation Gratitude – we’re so grateful to have the opportunity to share the importance of healthy nutrition and smiles.
In 2017, Power Crunch began honoring U.S. troops, veterans, and first responders by volunteering time at Operation Gratitude and donating Power Crunch products across the country and overseas. Within seven months, our Power Crunch family has helped package and ship over 100,000 Power Crunch protein bars, Blast drinks, and Proto Whey (protein powder) packets; we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon!
Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3), volunteer-based organization, that annually sends 250,000+ care packages to veterans, new recruits, first responders, wounded heroes, caregivers, 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. Operation Gratitude’s mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the military and first responder communities and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $50 and $100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 2 million care packages.
In addition to donating Power Crunch products, our staff has volunteered countless hours organizing care packages, performing quality control, and writing letters of appreciation. Just last month, the Los Angeles Field Marketing team visited Operation Gratitude and packaged thousands of Power Crunch Red Velvet protein bars, Chocolate Lava Power Crunch Snap Sticks, and teddy bears for the U.S. Armed Forces.
