Mission Statement: https://operationsupplydrop.org
The mission of local community chapters of Operation Supply Drop, The Teams is to build active groups of active duty, Veterans and Civilian supporters devoted to giving back through support at the community level. This support comes through volunteerism, events, and support groups where individuals from different walks of life can relax, have fun, affect others and be accepted around a shared purpose.
Teams are semi-autonomous local community chapters of active-duty, Veterans and civilian supporters working to affect the lives of Veterans and their families. Teams are self motivated groups that develop, plan and execute "Mandatory Fun" events that engage their local community in a positive manner. Teams work closely with local businesses, other Veteran organizations and companies to help with growth and sustainability. Teams also have a social media presence which allows teams members to stay engaged even when events are not occurring. Each local community team is different, made up and directed by individuals, but all maintain the consistent message of OSD in which Veterans are our passion.
