Operation Homefront Delivering Hope to our Veterans in RVA

Thank you for your interest in Vessels of Mercy International’s Operation Homefront Veteran’s Gift Bag Project. We appreciate the interest this project is creating in our community!

This list below is the approved list for this project. (generic brands are acceptable) Please purchase your items so that all bags will be gender-neutral. We ask that you create bags with 4-6 items but feel free to adjust due to the cost involved. You may also add a card or note to the inside of any bag you donate! (Empty bags (blue) are available at our office for pickup and filling)

Other donation needs: If you have extra items, we’d love to receive those to help make additional bags to supplement last minute needs and to maximize what we can distribute around the Greater Richmond Community. You can also make a monetary donation and/or purchase items at Amazon from our Veterans wish list https://smile.amazon.com/veterans gift bags.
