Operation Sandbox is dedicated to supporting America’s troops through the sending of care packages.  Each week volunteers meet to prepare “care packages” which include snacks, hygiene, coffee and food items for our troops. We also send microwaves, small refrigerators, coffee pots, heaters, toaster ovens, blankets, fans, etc. These boxes are packed with a lot of love, encouragement and TLC.  Our packages are sent to help strengthened the morale of our troops, show them they are deeply appreciated for serving our country and let them know their sacrifices have not gone unnoticed by the American people.  We not only support Georgia’s troops, but all branches of our military serving overseas. Our care packages are FREE to our military serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Sandbox” started out as a one-time project to send 32 extra large Christmas stockings to a Marine unit.  Due to overwhelming growth, we branched out to become a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.

Because of the outpouring of love and support from patriotic Americans, Operation Sandbox continues to reach members of our military serving overseas.  We have reached over 86,000 service members and the numbers continue to grow each week.

Our story has been covered by The Associated Press, The Atlanta Journal/Constitution newspaper, numerous local newspapers and magazines.  Also television coverage from WXIA TV (11 Alive), WSB TV, Fox 5 (Good Day Atlanta), TBN, NBC, WATC and guest appearances on numerous radio stations.

We have been recognized by the Georgia State Senate, Georgia House of Representatives and the Newton County Board of Commissioners.  “Thank You” letters from others include United States Senators and General Peter W. Chiarelli, Office of the Vice Chief of Staff, US Army, Washington, DC.  Most recently “Operation Sandbox” was one of the recipients awarded the “Tiffany Award” presented by WXIA TV (11 Alive) for “outstanding local volunteers who have demonstrated selfless devotion for the betterment of the community in support of our military.” Sandbox has also been recognized and was presented an "Outstanding Service Award" by MG Maria Britt, on behalf of the Georgia Army National Guard for support given to their soldiers during deployment.  The presentation was covered by FOX 5 News (Good Day Atlanta). See Recognitions Page.

Operation Sandbox GA has become a success because so many patriotic Americans have joined together for one purpose. Whether it is donating items, raising money for postage, packing boxes, writing letters of encouragement or working behind the scenes, without each individual this would be not be possible.

To all the faithful volunteers, members of the church and to all who have generously donated all over the United States, we are truly grateful.  We appreciate your continued support to help keep the morale of our military high through the sending of care packages to our troops.
