Hydralyte’s Electrolyte Powder Donation will help Operation Gratitude say “Thank You” and spread cheer to those who serve our nation
San Diego, CA (April 20, 2019) – Hydralyte, a clinically formulated oral rehydration solution (ORS), has donated 185,000 servings of its electrolyte powders to support Operation Gratitude’s Care Package program.
Operation Gratitude is thrilled to partner with Hydralyte to include Electrolyte Powder in thousands of Care Packages to be delivered to our men and women serving around the world and here at home,” said Kevin Schmiegel, CEO of Operation Gratitude. “As a 20-year Marine Veteran, I can tell you that the impact of this donation will be profound.”
The Care Package Program provides active military, military families, veterans and first responders with customized packages as a small way to say “Thank You” for all they do for our country. Members of the Hydralyte team will also donate their time in helping to prepare packages in San Diego on May 26th aboard the USS Midway.
“We are proud to support our military and first responders in any way that we can. They are exposed to so many different conditions keeping our nation safe and we are happy to ensure that they are hydrated while doing it.” said Oliver Baker, CEO, Hydralyte.
Demonstrating that actions speak louder than words, Operation Gratitude is a national nonprofit organization that provides tangible ways to forge strong bonds between Americans and their Military and First Responder heroes through volunteer service projects, acts of gratitude, and meaningful engagements in communities nationwide. Through its customized Care Package programs, Operation Gratitude has provided opportunities for millions of Americans to say “Thank You” to more than 2.3 million of our nation’s Heroes since 2003. In 2019, Operation Gratitude launched its Make Every Minute Count Campaign with the goal of delivering 525,600 Care Packages – one every minute of the year – to Service Members, their families at home, Veterans, and First Responders. Awarded a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator and a Platinum rating from Guidestar, 94 percent of Operation Gratitude’s expenditures go directly to programs that support our nation’s men and women in uniform at home and abroad.
