8. Send a Care Pouch
In partnership with CVS Health, Diamond Wipes, Hasbro and more, Operation Gratitude created the First Responder Care Pouch Program in 2017. These pouches are specifically filled and designed to git in a squad car or locker and include items to help first responders that are constantly on the go. These items include sunscreen, energy shots, cleaning wipes designed for firefighters, sweet treats, lip balm, quick-deploy paracord bracelets and more. Since 2017, Over 400,000 First Responder Care Pouches have been delivered to over 700 departments across the country. A quick click on the wish list page shows that donations are accepted in forms of jerky, salty snacks, puzzle books, instant coffee, body wipes and more. You can also pick from their AmazonSmile charity wish list as well to send the most fulfilling care pouch to a first responder on the front lines.
