Operation Leadership


What We’re Doing

I have volunteered and helped people in the past, however when we lost our restaurant to Hurricane Michael in 2018, I realized that my drive and organizational skills could help an entire community. Knowing how to cook helped!

As a U.S. Marine I am fully aware of the pressures and needs which military families encounter. I remember walking into base services at different duty stations requesting help and feeling like I had failed in some way. In time I realized that I did not fail, I joined the Marine Corps to serve my country. I did not know at that time that I was being paid below the poverty level. Active Duty Service Personnel still find themselves in financially challenging situations, we just want to help.

Identify those in need
Working with other 501 (c)(3) organizations  we have been able to directly identify military families in need. Those families are almost instantly vetted and Operation Leadership goes to work!

Flip the script!
Federal Food Programs need to open their doors to the crisis at hand. We are urging our Senators to write and pass the E5 Bill. This Bill would state that ALL Military members E5 and below would be eligible to apply for Federal Food Assistance Programs.

Program awareness

Increase program awareness to other 502 (c)(3)
