Operation Give’s Shelves Critically Low 

Salt Lake City, UT ---October 18, 2016—After delivering multiple shipment of supplies to various countries around the world Operation Give is running extremely low on humanitarian supplies to send to refugees and other who are suffering. 

Operation Give wants to send 1 million pounds of supplies to the Christian and Yazidi refugees in Northern, Iraq.  There are an estimated 2.5 million refugees in this area of the world. The biggest need these individuals have is for first aid and hygiene supplies and baby supplies.  

If you are able to donate items and funds to relieve the suffering of these individuals who had to flee their homes you can do so at https://www.plumfund.com/charity-fundraising/OperationGive or www.operationgive.org 

In addition, they are running short on supplies to send stockings to deployed members of the US Armed Forces. Operation Give has an ambitious goal of sending 25,000 stockings this year. This year we are encouraging organizations, clubs and businesses to have their own stuffing party. Contact, Rodney Fife for details.  

About Operation Give: 

Operation Give began when Paul, a member of the Utah Army National Guard, was activated and sent to Iraq in early spring, 2003.? He began to send back emails, detailing his time and activities, to a friend back in Salt Lake City, who then created a Weblog (Blog) so that others could read Paul’s journal.  
 
Paul’s family and some friends and co-workers began sending packages to Paul with items to make life in the desert, in the summer, more bearable.? Paul began to share these with other GI’s in his group, and then even with the POW’s and townspeople of the area. 
 
The genesis of Operation Give, Joys through Toys, began when Paul posted a story on his Blog about a little Iraqi girl he encountered.?This story was also published in the bestselling book, “Collateral Kindness: The True Story of an Army Interrogator in Iraq.” This book can be ordered on Amazon and other major bookstores.
