Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Leadership Development, Military & Veterans Organizations, Veterans

Mission: Founded in 2010, Operation Supply Drop (TAX ID: 27-3842517) works to build lasting networks with the larger community to drive mutual support for today’s active duty military, their families and the veteran population.

Results: - Over 150,000 veterans, active-duty and military families served - 9,000 community service hours in local communities around the world

Target demographics: Military Service-Members, Veterans & their Families

Direct beneficiaries per year: 87,000 Veterans, Active-Duty & Military Families

Geographic areas served: Military & Veteran Communities around the Glovbe

Programs: In response to a growing need from our deployed troops requesting generationally relevant gear from back home, Operation Supply Drop was founded in 2010 with a focus on delivering “Video Game Care Packages Downrange.” As we grew and service members returned home to face various transitional challenges, our objective evolved to identify and address the underlying needs of these veterans and their families. Today’s Operation Supply Drop is a direct reflection of listening to those we serve. Tens of thousands of our active-duty members are receiving care packages courtesy of our generous gaming partners while we develop substantial programming to work with veterans during their transition home. Our programs address Mental Health, Homelessness, and Employment for Veterans and their families accompanied by a global structure encouraging community service and commitment towards one another.

Being able to get supported by OSD made it possible for our WWP group to enjoy a little friendly competition. It was fun. Competitive and good way to let out stress without getting combative.

Thank you Operation Supply Drop, I'm a Peer Mentor with Wounded Warrior Project and hadn't played a video game in years. We get together at our meetings now and play Madden and other games and talk trash to each other, thank you guys!

This organization has had a huge impact on my husband and his friends. It allowed him to find that comradery that he missed when he left the service. This organization has allowed him to find a support system to help him through his recovery. Thanks for all you do.

I am a veteran that was wounded in combat in Iraq. Adjusting to civilian life had been extremely difficult and challenging. Gaming allowed me to have a respite from my daily battles with PTSD. It takes strength to fight the hopelessness and doomed feelings that were occurring constantly. Operation Supply Drop donated gaming system to our peer group so that we could get together for game nights. The comradery and support that originated from that donation will never be measured but this organization saved lives I know that for a fact. Thanks for all you do.

Being a disabled veteran, I was drawn to OSD by the opportunity to support the military community in a fun and unique way. As I've volunteered with the organization, I've watched OSD spread it's footprint and impact tremendously. Always willing to help in any fashion possible, I would recommend the organization to any service member or veteran in need of support. Even if OSD can't help you directly, they will try their hardest to find someone who can.

Not only does OSD provide amazing military and veteran support through their Supply Drop program, their Teams program also helps veterans find a new purpose after they've served. By giving Team members an opportunity to directly support military and veteran organizations in their area, often through hands on volunteering, OSD allows those involved to feel truly connected to their cause and often see the immediate result of their efforts. Whether you're the one receiving a Supply Drop, or a volunteer helping handing it off, you're rewarded with a sense of joy that can be truly life changing. It's one thing to donate to an organization, then see photos of the result a month later. It's a completely different experience to see a soldier cry because the computer OSD just gave him is going to allow him to watch the birth of his child.

Operation Supply Drop is a great organization, they have stepped up where other Veteran Non Profits have dropped when it comes to helping the veteran community. Not only do they do it through multiple different programs but they also do it with an open heart and mind. I love working with these guys and their teams and I hope I can only help them out more in the long run.
