About Operation Buckeye

Operation Buckeye was formed to send boxes to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last year, almost 5,000 boxes were sent to the men and women of our armed forces. To date, over 30,000 boxes have been sent!

Trying to bring a touch of home and brighten the day of a soldier, the boxes contain items that are both treats and necessities. Beef Jerky and hard candy are two of the favorites, along with drink mixes (to give water a better taste). Gum, chips, cheese crackers, canned fruit, granola bars, tuna snacks, tooth brushes and paste, books, batteries, deodorant, foot powder, peanuts, puzzle books, and wipes are only a partial list of items sent.

Every second and fourth Saturday, our dedicated volunteers pack and send the boxes.

If you wish to submit a soldier's name to receive a package from Operation Buckeye, please contact Jim Caronis at jim@operationbuckeye.org.

NOTE: Please be sure the subject line of your e-mail says "Names/Boxes."
