Jeep Dealerships Become Operation Gratitude “Drop Zones”

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Jeep brand is expanding its partnership with Operation Gratitude.

To help kick-off Operation Gratitude´s holiday donation drive, a charity designed to reach out to American Troops overseas, the Jeep brand is making the nearly 2,800 Jeep dealerships nationwide, including Mother Lode Motors of Sonora, official “drop zone” locations.

The announcement was made in a dramatic fashion by having an all-new 2006 Jeep Commander and seven skydivers drop from a helicopter. Operation Gratitude is a national non-profit organization that collects comfort items and letters of appreciation from the American public and ships them to service members overseas.

Stanley Flake, of Mother Lode Motors in Sonora, says he wants to make sure they do their part to brighten the spirits of the troops from California, and especially Sonora, that are stationed overseas for the holidays.
