Founded in February, 2005, Operation Shoebox NJ is an all-volunteer grass roots organization dedicated to collecting donated supplies and shipping care packages to U.S. troops based in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Middle East countries. We are committed to sending packages overseas as long as there is a need. Several times each year, volunteers gather to sort donated supplies and pack them in boxes that are shipped overseas. We rely on your compassion and patriotism to maintain our supply line, and applaud your continuing support and generosity; we thank those individuals, families, civic groups, small businesses and corporations that continue to ensure the success of our packing events. This web site helps you to support our mission by providing up to date information on items needed and events where your help is needed as well as our calendar showing all Shoebox activities. It also provides links to our supporter's sites, as well as information on how to contact us or register for an event.
Operation Shoebox NJ has shipped more than 73,000 total packages to U.S. military personnel serving in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and other posts in the Middle East.
Operation Shoebox NJ is 501C3 non-profit organization registered with the IRS and the New Jersey Department of State. We are not affiliated with any other organization using that name or any variation.
We salute these organizations and their employees for their contributions of services, supplies and financial support, all of which has enabled OPSHBX NJ to ship more than 62,000 packages overseas since February, 2005. We urge you to support and patronize these organizations as a way of saying thanks for their generosity and good will. The list continues to grow longer as the organization continues to attract more and more volunteers. Why not join us? Contact Rod Hirsch, executive director and founder of OPSHBX NJ for ways you and your company can help maintain the overseas supply line. We'd be happy to add you to our growing list of supporters!
