The annual magazine and gift drive begins October 1st. Please vist our online store and participate. You will be asked to enter in the Prep student's name (or skip this step if you do not want to designate the sale for a student) and then you will be able to shop for magazines and gifts. Digital subscriptions are also available. 40% of sales go directly to support O.O.'s work learning about food insecurity in the U.S. and towards providing Christmas food boxes to local families. During the month of October, students will be entered into a daily drawing for an Operation Others t-shirt for each sale they make! Thanks for your support.

Want to donate?
Each year, Operation Others purchases most of the food for families from the Food Bank for the Heartland. We make efforts to provide healthy and delicious food. By purchasing through the food bank, a one dollar donation can be used to purchase a retail equivalent of $3 worth of food. Therefore, we can provide food for a family of four for approximately $25. If you would like to make a monetary donation, checks made out to Operation Others can be sent to 7400 Western Ave. Omaha, NE 68114.
From time to time, the Food Bank is low on food or does not have the type of food/quantities needed for our project. Therefore, we invite you to consider hosting a food drive for OO. If you would like to host a food drive, pleas contact one of the O.O. moderators. Also, take a look at the following links for information about hosting a food drive and the items we would lik to have included in our food boxes.
