Toys for Troops, Operation Once in a Lifetime

IEA proudly supported Operation Once in a Lifetime’s Toy’s for Troops Drive with our 9th annual collection of unwrapped toys, books, games and gift cards in November 2021. Please check back for our next drive in November 2022.

Operation Once in a Lifetime receives numerous requests during the holidays from military service members who need assistance providing a good Christmas and a good Holiday for their kids. On average, they will help between 3500-4500 military families. These requests come from the families of those soldiers that are currently deployed overseas, stateside and even from families that have lost a parent protecting our country.
