2019 Updates!

Happy New Year! We can’t believe it’s another year already. We are so grateful for all of your continued support. Below are two updates we wanted to share.


Operation Once in a Lifetime was able to provide a $5800.00 emergency grant for a Marine Corp Veteran family who was in need of emergency assistance after their son was born 2 months early and was in NICU an hour away from their home.


Operation Once in a Lifetime’s annual Toys For Troops Program was able to assist over 800 families that were in need of a little help during Christmas. Over $50,000 in toys were distributed to families in need.

Toys for Troops 2018

The Holidays can be a tough time of year for many families, especially military families who deal with the constant deployments of their loved ones and moving around from duty station to duty station. During the November and December timeframe, Operation Once in a Lifetime will receive about 4500 requests from Active Duty Service Members, Veterans and their families needing assistance for holiday meals and toys for their kids for Christmas.

Operation Once in a Lifetime developed a a program called Toys for Troops where we raise toys for military families needing assistance during the holidays. Not every military family is in need but for the ones that are, we try and make a positive impact in their lives by donating new unwrapped toys to them.

Toys can be donated at several of our drop off locations across the United States. To find the nearest drop off location near you, please email: staff@operationonceinalifetime.com or you can make a tax deductible donation directly to our Toys for Troops Program by going to our Current Needs page and look for the Toys for Troops section.
