My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Operation First Response, Culpeper, VA, USA
I'm a veteran of a less violent time in our history & realize that my relatively peaceful military experience was a luck of the draw. Because I realize that, I feel obligated to help those who faced much more difficult experiences, especially those who came back from foreign wars different than they went. When I was searching for organizations that could best use my help and my donations, I wanted to find one that spent 90%+ of the donations on their programs, didn't pay high salaries to its board members, and had programs that actually improved the lives of those that need it. Operation First Response was the organization that I found & they far surpassed my requirements.
OFR is more than a charity organization, it is a family. A family comprised of those who recognize the hardships that our warriors face coming home and want to help, of warriors whose brothers in arms face hardships, and of warriors that were themselves helped by OFR and want to pay it down the line.
I am proud to be a part of it.
