Disaster Relief Wish ListMARCH 1, 2022
OPERATION USA IS NOT ACCEPTING UNSOLICITED IN-KIND MATERIAL AID FOR UKRAINIAN RELIEF AT THIS TIME.
THIS WISH LIST IS INTENDED TO BE A GENERAL, YEAR-ROUND GUIDANCE FOR OUR CORPORATE PARTNERS.
WE KINDLY ASK THAT YOU DO NOT COLLECT/GATHER/PURCHASE ITEMS FROM THIS LIST WITHOUT FIRST CONTACTING INFO@OPUSA.ORG.
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:
Baby formula & supplies
Clothing & shoes (new, unused)
Exam & surgical gloves
Face Masks (N95)
First aid supplies
Hair brushes & combs
Modular housing units
Rolled plastic sheeting, 6 ml or thicker
Shampoo & conditioner
Transportation services (air, land, sea)
Water purification tablets
Wound care materials
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.
