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 36,000 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.
