Personalized Christmas Cards Company The Gallery Collection Helps Operation Gratitude Reach 500,000th Care Package Milestone

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Prudent Publishing's The Gallery Collection, a leading personalized Christmas cards company in the nation, is pleased to announce its involvement in helping Operation Gratitude reach their 500,000th care package milestone.

On Saturday, December 19th, Operation Gratitude, which is a non-profit all-volunteer military support organization, will be assembling and shipping their 500,000th care package to a special recipient serving a tour of duty overseas. The recipient has yet to be announced.

Recently, the personalized Christmas cards company donated over 6,000 holiday cards to Operation Gratitude's "Letters to Heroes" program. At this past Saturday's 110th Army-Navy Game, tables were set up so fans could use the cards to write personalized messages of appreciation to deployed service members. The cards will then be stuffed into outgoing care packages, including the 500,000th package being assembled on December 19th.

This was not the first time The Gallery Collection donated cards for the "Letters to Heroes" program. At the beginning of the year, the greeting cards publisher donated 100,000 personalized thank you cards, which were then stuffed in care packages being assembled at Washington D.C.'s Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in honor of the King Day of Service.

The Christmas cards company also helped young students from New York City get involved in Operation Gratitude's letter writing program by providing them with holiday cards to personalize with heartfelt messages. The Gallery Collection selected several cards to be part of their "21 Card Salute," which can be viewed on their blog at the following address:
