Operation Interdependence provides military care packages and support to active military members overseas and to veterans at home. Our care packages are packed by hand by volunteers and include small items like cards and games, snacks, toiletries and candy. O.I. ® is a nation-wide 501(c)3 organization that has no paid volunteers. Everyone, including our board members and National President, do their jobs out love for the military.

MILITARY CARE PACKAGES
O.I.’s mission is to support as many troops serving overseas as possible during their deployment, along with veterans here at home. For many service members their care packages are the only communication from “home”.
OI volunteers in centers across the country work with schools, churches, synagogues, civic groups, corporations, and anyone willing to contribute to make our mission possible. Get involved here.
OI is Department of Defense approved. OI doesn’t compete with Military Exchanges (PX’s) by sending small amounts of goods.
For military personnel interested in receiving care packages please go to Military Registration.
We’re proud of our 2017 work!
