“Crown Point – Operation Gratitude” is this year’s parade theme and we are in full swing. Our goal this year is to assemble and ship care packages to our troops serving overseas. We want to send as many care packages possible so let’s really show our soldiers how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice in serving this great nation of ours!
Through your donations, we will be filling these care packages with items serving and returning soldiers have said they wanted and need while serving away from home. We are accepting donations through PayPal or through mail up to July 15, 2017. Due to the amount of items in the care packages the Crown Point 4th of July Celebration Committee will be bulk purchasing all items so that we can attain the maximum number, this is why we are only accepting monetary donations to support the care packages. Please use the following information and PDF file for mail donating or button for donating through PayPal .

Best of all, included with these items will be letters and drawings from our elementary school children.
The Declaration of Gratitude in the care packages is a statement to express Northwest Indiana’s appreciation for the service of our brave men and women currently serving in the military. Every supporter that donates at least one dollar to help fund the care packages will have their name added to the Declaration of Gratitude to show their support. To have a specific name like “The Smith Family” or “John, Mary, Kyle, Susan Smith” be added to the declaration please information us; when going through PayPal in the special instructions area or when mailing on the donation form.
