(HOUSTON, TX) – Operation Interdependence has been selected as the third quarter charitable partner for Twin Eagle’s 2016 Soar to Success campaign.
Operation Interdependence is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a means for community members to support troops serving on the frontlines, military families and veterans. Approximately, 25 percent of the items OI receives are given to family groups on military bases, VA hospitals and other veterans organizations.
The cornerstone of the OI Civilian-to-Military Delivery System® is the Civilian Ration® (called C-rat ®). OI volunteers in 15 centers across the country work with schools, churches, synagogues, civic groups and corporations in their community to create the C-rats. The C-rats are designed for delivery to the frontlines and are individual quart-sized baggies that contain a personal note from a caring civilian at home and items such as snacks, games and personal care products. The most important part of the C-rat is the letter from a person who has never met that soldier, sailor, marine or airman, but takes the time to write his or her expressions of care and concern.
Since the founding of Operation Interdependence in 2001, more than 2,000,000 troops around the world have received C-rats® from home, including those serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Germany and Japan. In their support for Operation Interdependence, the Twin Eagle team set a goal of 100 boxes, which will include 2,500 C-Rats and 2,500 letters.
