OPERATION SHOEBOX
March 10, 2010

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing from returning troops who go out of their way to visit and thank us.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

wish for peace so that there are no more wars and no more troos away from home.

More feedback

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.
