The charitable group wants 2014 to be the biggest and best year yet with a target of $1 million.
One million dollars might be a big goal, but Operation Supply Drop has been making serious strides since it’s inception in 2010. According to a letter issued by founder Captain Steven Machuga and chairman Glenn Banton, OSD has taken in $650k over the past four years and made 80 successful supply drops of games, goodies and most of all fun to some 2500 deployed or wounded US soldiers.
This year will be a little different for OSD though in that they’re making the charity a full-time gig and re-focusing their efforts. OSD will be launching an all-new initiative with Thank You Deployment for on-base activities and is even planning personal phone calls from their representatives for corporate supporters in order to better connect, share strategy and see that the most good can be done with their donations.
The result of all this they hope, will be a big uptick in donations and an ending figure that looks something like that aforementioned target sum of a cool million. That amount of cash could definitely bring more than a little fun to the lives of the men and women of the armed forces. It’s a great charity with a clear goal that’s more than attainable, but they’ll need your help to get there.
And let’s face it, everybody needs a little more fun in their lives, especially people with jobs that are this tough. If you’d like to donate, click here to head to their official PayPal page.
