Founded in 2010, Operation Supply Drop (TAX ID: 27-3842517) brings Veterans and Civilian Supporters together. We are the most-generationally relevant veteran support organization on the planet serving US, NATO and ANZAC veterans via 3 primary programs: The Teams, Supply Drops & Thank You Deployments.
Supply Drop Program
We assemble care packages which we send to veterans deployed as well as to those in hospitals or to military installations across the world along with supporting events like homecomings, family days, Christmas parties and deployment ceremonies. This is not just US veterans, it is our allies as well. Care packages are littered with amazing games, products, apparel and many other items that truly do “Bring Fun Where There is None”. If you have ever been away from a friend or family and received a letter from them, that is the feeling a Supply Drop brings to veterans. This program serves to boost morale for those serving as well as their families. It’s also the entry point for many into the Operation Supply Drop Community.
Thank You Deployment Program
Sends veterans to various events across the world with a civilian counterparts. An example is the Thank You Deployment we recently had in Sonoma, California where some Veteran and a Chapter Team member civilian got an opportunity to see racing first hand and were treated as VIP’s. This is an opportunity for both to learn each other’s story while enjoying some well deserved fun. We structure these to create a shared experience which develops a relationship lasting beyond the event and into the growth of The Teams program.
The Teams Program
Locally based chapters of Veterans and Civilian Supporters, working together to directly address lowering veteran suicide, depression, homelessness, and unemployment. In person Chapters of The Teams across the world come together during their monthly “Mandatory Fun” social events. These events range from gaming, bowling, movies, baseball games, volunteering in their community and the list goes on. One of the toughest things for veterans is being socially connected with those outside of the military. Operation Supply Drop is devoted to bridging that gap and bringing military veterans/civilians together. The Teams help create a stable environment, create networking opportunities, and finally create a support mechanism for veterans/civilians in times of need. This has already been proven to be a vital program and we look forward to it’s continued growth.
We take pride that 88% of all the donations that come into Operation Supply Drop are used to support veterans around the world. Click the links below to learn more about how we use your donations and what Operation Supply Drop is all about!
