Welcome to Operation Buckeye
OPERATION BUCKEYE was formed with the sole purpose of sending boxes to our troops as a way to thank them for their efforts and to bring them a touch of home. The physical conditions they endure are challenging and being away from family for long periods is a true hardship. Over 38,000 care packages have been shipped to date!
Trying to bring a touch of home and brighten the day of a soldier, the boxes contain items that are both treats and necessities. Beef Jerky and hard candy are two of the favorites, along with drink mixes (to give water a better taste). Chips, cheese crackers, canned fruit, granola bars, tuna snacks, Girl Scout cookies, tooth brushes and paste, books, deodorant, foot powder, peanuts, puzzle books, and wipes are only a partial list of items sent.
Important change to our Open Packs
Operation Buckeye is excited with the increased interest in our organization from the community. Due to overwhelming participation in our open packs and wanting the ability to provide our volunteers with a productive and meaningful experience we must limit participation to the first 15 registered volunteers. Please register by clicking on the date you would like to volunteer on our Event Calendar page. Thank you for your understanding.
