Since I began with this organization, I have watched it grow from just a state organization to a regional organization. Channel six, an affiliate of NBC, has honored the founder, Marc Badeau, as a 2010/2011 NBC “6 Who Care Award” Recipient. The Governor has honored this organization by giving it the 2011 Maine Governor’s Award as Maine’s Outstanding Non-Profit and Vermont has just nominated this group for their Outstanding Non Profit. This year over 32,000 Christmas presents were given to children of military personnel in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and parts of Western New York. Every year this group grows and grows and will soon become nationwide with your help.

I was involved with Operation Tribute for a few years now. I have been more involved with the fundraising end with the Knights of Columbus. The program is first rate in that it is not a needs based program but a tribute to the unsung heroes of the military services, the children. The anxiety that the children have is just as real as the adults but they seem to be overlooked. This program brings them to the front line so to speak and recognizes them for their sacrifice of their parents. I currently sit on the board for the State Deputy of the Knights of Columbus and I am very proud to be a part of this organization.
