Review for Operation Troop Appreciation, West Mifflin, PA, USA
Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA) is a 100% volunteer organization that support deployed members of the military. It's 98.5% efficiency rating means you know exactly where your money is going- to the brave men & women protecting us! I have volunteered for OTA for about 2 years now, and it has been a fantastic experience. You know you are making a difference in every box you pack and every Thank you card you have signed for a soldier. It is so personally satisfying that it almost doesn't feel like you are volunteering! I have had the opportunity to meet the Officers and Board Members of OTA, and their heartfelt and unwavering dedication to our men & women of the Armed Forces is inspiring. They throw their hearts into this organization- and it shows! They set the example for the volunteers. There is no task too big or too menial they will not tackle with a smile. What OTA has accomplished in almost 7 years as a 501c3 is amazing- over 80,000 deployed soldiers have been granted "wish list" items. I know as long as we have soldiers deployed overseas, OTA will be there to serve them and honor their sacrifice.
