Operation Supply Drop Sends $300,000 in Games to Armed Forces
Operation Supply Drop sends video games to troops deployed all around the globe.
With the support of video game developers, publishers and players, Operation Supply Drop raised $302,187 worth of video games and gear for soldiers overseas. The collection of video games reaches soldiers and sailors deployed overseas and any soldiers recovering from injuries in military hospitals.
To deliver the video games to soldiers stationed around the global, 12 separate supply drops make their way to US troops during the holidays. Another 12 drops head to overseas soldiers as well. You can view a gallery of the first supply drop on the Operation Supply Drop website.
