Operation Homefront provides the kind of assistance that our troops and their families really need today. From paying bills to ensure electricity isn't cut off, to providing housing for our wounded warior heros, this organization is really what philanthropy should be all about. Just this Christmas alone, they partnered with Wal Mart to ensure that the holidays were happy for the children of deployed soldiers. Also, in 2009, 95% of funds went directly to troops and their families. It's how a non-profit should be run.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

it helps in the ways that are most needed in a quick and efficient manner.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

world class.
