What a great way to teach patriotism and get children involved in a meaningful project!
Welcome to Operation Packing Company and thank you for choosing to participate in our School Donation Program. This program is operational at many schools and we have taken all we have learned to do everything we can to make this easy to implement on your campus and for us to gather the items that our troops value most.
First, we need to know if your school will do this on a monthly basis from September through May or if this will be a one-time project. You will be provided with a list of items we include in the boxes and ask you to choose one item for each month you will participate. We found that, in most cases, when the students selected the items to be collected, they were more successful. We ask that items are the smaller, travel size to make it affordable for the kids to purchase and allow us to include a wide variety of items in the boxes we ship out. It is also worth noting that we need to make sure that the expiration dates have not passed. We have attempted to choose items that can be found even in dollar stores. Items must be individually wrapped for us to ensure their safety and to pass customs.
