Need Notes for Our Military

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.

Operation Interdependence, The civilian to military delivery organization, specializes in real people sending real rations to real heroes, and our oversees heroes need the simple comforts of home while abroad like games, condiments, candy, and protein.

Some food organizations aren’t accepting goods during COVID-19 but Operation Interdependence does. Although, the organization sends thousands of care packages per month, what they’re requesting most during this tough time is your thoughts, your thanks, and your time to write a note to the troops. National President and Colorado State Manager, Karon Carley just wrote 50 notes last night Monday, May 18, but they need 400 more. “Anything at all to remind them, to let them know we think of them, and give them a taste of home. That’s basically what it is, is a piece of home,” says Carley.

Karon reads an example of one of the notes for our military by reciting,

“Twinkle twinkle little star. When the starts come out tonight, know that I wished upon them, and sent them straight to you. Wishing you know how much you’re appreciated, wishing the best of everything. Most of all, just wish you know that I thank you for your service.”

Operation Interdependence has been operating for 18 years of service to our military community, has sent over 2 million care packages, and sends 2,500 notes each and every month. For more information on how you can send your note, click here.
