About Operation Give
The Operation Give Foundation was established and registered in Salt Lake City, Utah in November of 2004. There is a small group of volunteers in Salt Lake City, Utah and a group of people, both military personnel and nationals, who continue to assist in making it possible to continue funneling all of the donations from around the world to the Operation Give teams in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries. The donated supplies continue to be distributed to children in schools and orphanages, to people in poor conditions and to US soldiers who are attempting to make a difference in their own way.
Operation Give arose from the needs of children all over Iraq for toys, school supplies, hygiene items, clothing, shoes, etc. and to provide the soldiers, assisting in rebuilding Iraq, the necessary resources, and supplies to help bring hope for a new beginning to the children of the war-torn country. The continued response from individuals and groups reading about Operation Give on the websites is nothing short of remarkable. However, the need is just as great to continue and expand the reach of Operation Give and to take it from its current state of a “spare time” charity to something much greater.
