Operation Cr's Programs

Operation Hunger is Operation Cr’s leading hunger relief mission to fight food insecurity among low-income children and families in need in New York City and beyond. It involves donating food and other resources to emergency food programs that accommodate the food insecure and are an established presence in their communities. By providing food and resources to them, Operation Cr wants to sustain, grow, and even create food programs that can help provide a consistent supply of food to families in need. Currently, Operation Hunger has allowed hundreds of thousands of families to be fed throughout New York City and with your support, we hope to help assist so many more programs. Ultimately, we hope to see food insecurity be gone and we will do our part with Operation Hunger! Become a part of Operation Hunger by either volunteering or donating to our mission!

In choosing to participate in Operation Food, you are helping Operation CR in its mission to help end child hunger. Operation Food rescuers are lending a helping hand by either giving canned and boxed foods to children to help us fight the poor nutrition children face everyday or donating to our Operation Hunger program! With extreme poverty so prevalent in the world and children orphaned, we can rescue so many children that cannot afford to eat everyday because of their difficult circumstances. We need your help to donate thousands of canned foods and begin our child hunger rescue. Canned foods well be given to both food pantries that provide food and supplies to low-income families with children and soup kitchens that make meals for the homeless. Become a part of Operation Food by either volunteering or donating to our mission! Whether you donate canned food, host a food drive for us, or provide financial means for us to purchase food, you are investing in making a difference in the world! Get started today!

To be involved in Operation Stay Warm, all you have to do is donate a winter children jacket to one of our local centers (listed below). Child poverty affects children all over the world. 767 million people alone live in extreme poverty and only have $1.90 a day to live on. Out of this 767 million people, 328 million are children under 18 and 104 million are children under 5 (World Bank, 2016). In the United States alone, 43% of children are in low-income families (National Center for Children In Poverty). As a result of all this child poverty, it makes it difficult for some children to have basic needs met such as winter coats for the cold season. If you choose to participate in Operation Stay Warm, you are helping Operation CR in its mission to help provide for needs that children do not have. You are making a difference by providing jackets to children who once did not have them so they can keep warm in the winter. All jackets and clothes go to local clothing drives that provide jackets and clothes to the homeless weekly. Become a part of Operation Stay Warm by either volunteering or donating to our mission! Whether you host a clothing drive or even donate either clothing or finances for us to provides clothes, you are investing in making a difference in the world! Get started today!,

To be a donator to Operation Toys, participants donate toys that are either new or in good condition to one of our local centers (listed below). Child poverty has a big impact on the physical and emotional development of children. Children in poverty have lower self-esteem and a difficult time controlling emotions and stress (The Borgen Project). Poverty also has an affect on a child’s well-being, or state of happiness (Child Trends). With poverty having these emotional effects, children are more likely to be depressed and view themselves negatively. In choosing to participate in Operation Toys, you are choosing to invest in children having happier lives despite the poverty they experience. Operation Toy rescuers are fighting the bad emotional consequences of poverty and providing hope to children that may think there is no hope because of their conditions. All toys are given to an organization that gives toys to disadvantaged children. Become a part of Operation Toys by either volunteering or donating to our mission! Whether you host a toy drive, donate toys, or provide financial means for us to provide toys, you are investing in making a difference in the world! Get started today!

Operation Relief is Operation Cr’s mission to provide families in need with the resources (school supplies, technology, education etc.) they need to improve their quality of life. By providing families with appropriate resources, Operation Cr wants to be part of the reason why the circumstances of families change for the better. Resources include any supplies families are lacking or that they might need in order for them to progress in their development and overall life. Many families in need are in need of so much more in their lives in order to live better and we want to provide for them! With millions in the world not having enough to support themselves, we need to come together, make a change, and provide for children and families!
