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 35,000 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.

Office Hours:  Tuesdays 12-2 PM (recently changed from 10-12 PM) and Thursdays 12-2 PM.  Please contact us to let us know you will be visiting.

Packs:  Every second and fourth Saturday, our dedicated volunteers pack and send the boxes. More information available on the Volunteer page.

Item Drives:  To organize an item drive in your community, please review the information on our Volunteer page.
