Review for Operation Shoebox, Belleview, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My famiuly has been involved with Operation Shoebox for several years now. Our organization makes ditty bags and Christmas stockings to send to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. More than that we correspond with the troops, keep them in our prayers, and promote patriotism. Alot of our time is devoted to fundraising for the postage costs (which are not subsidized by the government) and for the items that go in our bags. It is truly a worthwhile organization.

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

the sense of gratification that I'm helping to let a soldier know that he/she is remembered and appreciated. Also, meeting the friends that I work with.

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

very patriotic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

meet the needs of many more soldiers.

Ways to make it better...

we would have more donations for needed supplies and postage.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.
