Target demographics: Children of military families living in New England, New York or New Jersey.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 25,000

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help fundraise; help gift wrap and help spread the word about the program.

Geographic areas served: New England, New York and New Jersey

Programs: Operation Tribute acknowledges the sacrifices being made by the children of all military families living in New England, New York and New Jersey including the Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, Army, Navy , Air Force and Marines by offering them a holiday gift. At the request of a member of a military family, Operation Tribute will provide an age and gender-appropriate gift to each child registered ranging from newborn to age 16.

Although our goal is to provide each child a holiday gift, they will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis and requests will be filled based upon the amount of funding that is raised in each state. The holiday gift provided will be a top-quality product from a major manufacturer (Mattel, Hasbro, Matchbox, etc.).

Mission:
Our mission is to pay tribute to the children of military families for the bravery and sacrifice that they exhibit every day.  Operation Tribute acknowledges the sacrifices being made by the children of all military families living in New England, New York and New Jersey including the Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, Army, Navy , Air Force and Marines by offering them a gift during the most special time of the year - the holidays.
Results:
In 2009, Operation Tribute distributed over 25,000 gifts throughout New England, New York and New Jersey. No child that registered for the program was refused a gift.
