Review for Operation Interdependence, Grand Junction, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

More than 12 years ago, My Husband and I took on the task of bringing Operation Interdependence to our local Los Angeles Area. Over time we have moved from my living room to 3,000 sq feet of donated space at a Veterans facility in North Hills, CA. Since then, my husband as passed away, but OI goes on with wonderful, dedicated volunteers who are committed to serving our deployed Service Members as well as well as our Vets that come to this facility for medical care and emotional and social support.

The volunteers of Operation Interdependence, Los Angeles are proud and grateful to have the opportunity to give back just a little service in return for all that our military has given to us through their service and sacrifice.

If you come to Los Angeles, please visit us and see how much we do with limited resources.

Review for Operation Interdependence, Grand Junction, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Volunteer and now a Manager for this national organization for 9 years. We are always amazed at how far we can make limited resources go. We can reach 50 deployed service members for just $30 and some donated supplies. $3,000 will send 5,000 service members treats and good wishes from a grateful American people. and each one will receive a letter thanking them for their service and sacrifice. The letters we get back prove that a little goes a long way in keeping morale high in-theatre.

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

All the letters of thanks we get prove that a small treats and a letter from a thankful civilian does so much to raise troop morale.

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

The camaraderie experienced with all the volunteers who are committed to the mission of supporting the morale of our deployed military

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

Kind, caring and committed to the mission

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

Reach every deployed service member in every branch of service, every month for years.

Review for SOUTHWEST VETERANS BUSINESS RESOURCE CENTER, Perris, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I see the result of not doing anything for our Vets. So many are left without a way to re-integrate into society after giving their all for us. This organization is a positive action-taking method of helping returning Vets achieve more than a minimum wage life.

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

Open centers around the country to help many more vets in their local area with face-to-face, hands-on experiences.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
