Coronavirus Emergency Fund

With the spread of the COVID-19 Virus and closures of schools and businesses across the United States, we are seeing millions of Americans out of work and without any income and no certain time of when they will go back to work. As deadly as this virus is, the economic impact it will have on American families, including Veterans, Active Military whose spouses are currently unemployed and their families, will be unmeasurable.

Imagine a family out of work, on unpaid leave or temporarily laid off with no means to purchase food, or even medicine such as an inhaler for their child? Operation Once in a Lifetime is setting up a fund to directly help these families where we will provide emergency financial assistance for these families in need by providing grants and/or gift cards so these families can provide needed necessities to simply survive and keep a roof over their head.

If you would like to assist in helping those in need, you can make a tax-deductible donation on our current needs page that will go directly to this fund. 

Thank you in advance!

Holiday Help

The holidays are fast approaching and Operation Once in a Lifetime receives thousands of requests from Active Military families and Military Veteran families needing a little hand up and help for the holidays.

These requests vary from families needing help with toys, meals and help getting home for the holidays, especially from those families stationed overseas.    Help us help those that have sacrificed so much for others.

You can donate online, as well as donate toys at our various drop off locations. Donations are tax deductible.    

For more information on how you can help, to find the nearest Toys For Troops drop off location or to donate airline miles to help fly Service Members home for the holidays, please email
