Service First & Always: Operation Supply Drop believes in service to others which is paramount to individual purpose and success in our overall mission
Show, Don’t Just Tell: Words can be powerful and shared wisdom strong, but both cannot compare to the value of taking someone by the hand and showing them the way. Additionally, We expect impact through action to excel in our mission, the level of which is in direct correlation to individual passion and ability.

Lead with a Cause: Operation Supply Drop will lead the Veteran Support Conversation, working with any individual or organization sharing the same vision and passion to support our veterans.
Be Here, Now: We are present. We respect and enjoy the moment with those we are with, when and where we are with them.
Operation Supply Drop was founded in 2010 initially on delivering “Video Game Care Packages Overseas” in response to a growing need from our deployed troops desiring generationally relevant gear from back home. As we grew and these service members began to return home facing various transitional challenges, we adapted to address the underlying needs of these veterans and their families. Today’s Operation Supply Drop is a direct reflection of listening to those we serve and while the video games are still being provided by the thousands to our active-duty personnel, we’ve developed substantial programming to work with veterans through their transition and into finding their new “tribe.” All of our programs directly touch on Mental Health, Homeless and Employment for Veterans and their families sitting atop of a global community structure encouraging community service and accountability to one’s peers.
Where does the name “Operation Supply Drop” come from?
We use “Operation” to signify that service requires a deliberate set of actions. While “Supply Drop” held a different meaning in the earlier days of our organization, it has come to metaphorically represent the Airdrops or “Supply Drops” in current/past conflicts and also humanitarian in nature. All of Operation Supply Drop’s programs and services provide support when and where support is needed in the same vein as those supplies, via Airdrop, are provided to active-duty service members stuck behind enemy lines or to a remote population recovering from a natural disaster. We see the need and meet the need.
