In-kind donations of food and personal care Items are a great way to get everyone involved and support Operation Love.  Personal care items, food, school supplies and clothes will go directly to support individuals and families around the world. All italicized items in bold print are our most critical donations needed to support our program. “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”- Nelson Mandela
