“Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey” is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit who is registered with the state of NJ consisting of all volunteers who shows support for our United States Military Forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan/Operation Enduring Freedom through:
1) Organizing and collecting donated U.S. Troop supplies and goodies to send to our brave Heroes deployed in harm’s way in Iraq, Afghanistan and supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.
2) Helping to promote, coordinate, and facilitate welcoming home events for local veterans in the South Jersey area by partnering with the Warriors Watch Riders and other Patriotic organizations to bring our local Heroes home in “Rock Star Fashion”.
Bar/Bat Mitzvah students can organize their own care package supply collection drives. It can be as simple as asking guests to bring one or more care package items (we provide a list of what we ship) and/or doing a collection drive at the student’s local school, synagogue and/or neighborhood. For example, a student can go to their Principal at their Middle School and ask for permission to do a school-wide drive where the list is sent home to parents and students can bring in 1 or more items and drop it off at school. Our volunteers will come pick it up. Another example is a Mitzvah student can go door-to-door (with supervision) in their neighborhood handing out a list of items we ship and ask neighbors to buy and donate 1 or more items and to leave it on their doorstep on a designated day and the student will come back and pick it up. The options are endless and it is fun and rewarding!
