When disaster strikes, Operation USA responds quickly with shipments of much-needed relief and recovery supplies.
In order to coordinate a fast and effective response, it is crucial that we have a cache of appropriate material goods on hand at the Operation USA warehouse. This “disaster cache” will also come in handy if and when Los Angeles suffers a disaster locally. The following is a list of items that Operation USA most often needs in times of disaster:
Due to shipping logistics and distribution challenges in disaster areas, we can only accept these items if they are new and in bulk quantities. If you have any of these items in small quantities or that are gently used, we recommend you take them to a local organization which can utilize them in your own community.
