Review for Operation Care Pckage, Inc., Joliet, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The history of this charity really is an amazing one. One woman's dream, inspired by her brother when he was deployed (years ago), a few friends to help... A wonderful movement was born. Now, thanks to that dream, thousands of deployed soldiers lives have been touched by the generosity and donations of others. It's truly inspiring to read the soldiers notes of thanks and to hear how much these care packages mean/meant to them. It's in no way possible without the generous hearts of the volunteers and the people who collect the donations and the people who donate. I am so blessed to be able to say that I have been affiliated with OCP for over 13 years and watched it grow from one woman's house (basement, living room, dining room, kitchen... Wherever she could store the items to be sent to the soldiers) to now needing a much larger space to be able to accommodate all of the donations and supplies to be sent to even more soldiers. Make no mistake... This is a love thing. A love of our volunteers, a love of the people who so generously continue to donate, but most of all a love for the hearts of our soldiers (past, present and future) who so generously give of themselves in order to protect and serve each of us. God Bless each and every one of those mentioned in this review. LET NO HERO BE FORGOTTEN!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more people involved.

Review for Operation Care Pckage, Inc., Joliet, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Never in my life have I been so impressed with the hearts of the people involved with OCP, Inc. I have been associated with this group for many years now (over 10) and have watched it grow steadily over the years. From one woman's heart for all soldiers, she started sending packages to any soldier deployed overseas. Most of this was done by faith (not knowing where items would come from and would there be enough for everyone on that week's list and would there be enough money for postage, etc.) and blood, sweat and tears. Debbie and a small group of friends kept the faith and have, by no small miracles, managed to make many many soldiers feel her heart's desire... that No Hero Be Forgotten. If ever you wanted to do something for your country... for the soldiers... for a worthwhile group... This is the one to check out and lend a hand to. Thanks so much, from the bottom of my heart, for everything you have done, and continue to do, for our Heroes. God Bless!

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

Seeing, and receiving, cards and letters from soldiers who have benefited from these care packages.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get wayyyyy more people involved to help.
