1888PressRelease - The Gift Basket Industry is proud to launch a global campaign to support local health care workers.
The Gift Basket Association was founded in 2009 in the spirit of support and collaboration and in these difficult times, we're pulling together to provide support through gifting to our healthcare workers.
The founder of The Gift Basket Association also owns a local gifting company in Peoria, Arizona. Debbie Quintana said, "I was at the office creating the gift boxes and shared what I was doing online. One of our clients asked if they could buy one and have it sent to their local clinic in Virginia. I asked my gift basket peer in Virginia to fill the order for me. That's how #operationgifting was born. We now have over 50 gift basket companies throughout the United States participating and that number is expected to grow to over 300. We even have our first member in Australia participating."
Gift basket companies have committed to donating a minimum of 10 boxes to local health care organization in their areas. Boxes are based on the size of the staff at each location. Smaller clinics will receive a small box meant for 8-10 people all the way up to emergency rooms receiving boxes for 20-30 people. Boxes are filled with healthy, savory and sweet snacks for grab and go snacking.
General consumers can get involved by visiting the Gift Basket Association website and ordering through the site or working directly with the local gift basket company of their choice. Not only will we be supporting the health care workers but now, we're supporting small businesses.
