The holidays are a busy time of year for most families. There’s gifts to purchase, relatives to visit and cold, snowy weather to endure, all which may make it challenging to add “give back” to your To Do List. At Operation USA, we know you have a lot on your mind, so we’re making it easier than ever to support our programs this year. Read on to learn more about all the ways you can make a difference in December (and all year long!).
Give by December 31st to earn tax benefits on your next return!
Every gift to Operation USA is fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Plus, monetary donations are the fastest and most effective way to improve the lives of children and families here in the United States and in communities around the world.
SEND HOLIDAY CARDS
Let Operation USA check this item off your To Do List for you!
Fill out this form to make your holiday donation, and for every $15 donated, we’ll send a card containing a cheerful holiday message to a recipient of your choosing. Or, select the “dedicate” option at checkout to send an e-card instantly.
BUY A GIFT FOR A CHILD OR TEEN IN NEED
Every year, Operation USA distributes toys and gifts to young people in the greater Los Angeles area. If you’re local, drop off new, unused toys and gifts (no military themed items or toy guns, please!) to our office until December 16th.
You can also donate to support the purchase of gifts here. Every $15 brightens the holiday season for one child or teen.
If you’re a United Airlines MileagePlus member, you can transfer unused or expiring miles to Operation USA at no cost. We then use those miles to travel to areas in which we work, saving valuable dollars on travel expenses, which are then reallocated directly to programs. Every mileage donation supports ongoing programs in communities worldwide.
Click here to give (simply scroll through the list to find Operation USA and enter the number of miles you wish to donate).
GIVE THE GIFT OF HUMANITARIAN AID
Is there someone on your list who is challenging to shop for? A donation in his/her name is the perfect holiday gift!
Donate here and select the “dedicate” option to give in honor of a friend or loved one, or to send a special holiday e-card letting your recipient know you’ve given in their name.
SHARE WITH FRIENDS
A meaningful way to support Operation USA’s mission and ongoing programs is to help spread the word about our work here in the US and in countries across the globe. The more people who know about our commitment to humanitarian aid, the more we are able to do to improve the lives of children and families who have been impacted by disasters. Share our web link (opusa.org) on Facebook or Twitter, or repost our updates on Instagram. Every new follower makes a difference.
All of us here at Operation USA wish you a very happy holiday season! Thank you for your continued support.
