Operation Supply Drop Joins Fellowship Retreat for Navy SEAL Gold Star Families
Operation Supply Drop (OSD) was honored to team up with C3 Global and America’s Mighty Warriors at Allaso Ranch in Hawkins, Texas to welcome 15 Navy SEAL Gold Star Families to a weekend Fellowship Retreat. This is an annual retreat to help military families who have lost loved ones experienced a much-needed time of relaxation and rejuvenation that will play a huge role in their healing process.
Upon arrival at Allaso Ranch, OSD began processing sheets, blankets, insect repellant and Sun Block for the participating Families. Also provided by OSD were about 100 different types of card and board games along with other goodies for the children including items from LootCrate. OSD then pitched in with preparing for the reception of the Gold Star Families and met members of C3 Fellowship and America’s Mighty Warriors.
The Gold Star Families arrived later in the evening where OSD was again honored to participate in welcoming them to Allaso Ranch. We meet all the Families and wished them a great weekend. OSD was able to sit down for dinner with some of the families and get to know them and the story of their losses. It was a humbling and rewarding experience to meet Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, and Children of Fallen Warriors. Dinner was provided by In and Out Burger who provided a 40 foot trailered kitchen and made burgers on site. This was a big hit with the families.
Noting the success of the annual event, Steve Gallegos of C3 Fellowship Church said, “Thank you to Operation Supply Drop for your partnership with our Navy SEAL Gold Star Family Retreat! By working together, we can do more for these families who have given so much. We are making a difference and we are letting these families know that the price paid will never be forgotten.”
This event was a very rewarding experience and OSD is happy that we were invited back for next year’s retreat. It was a true pleasure to have the opportunity to give back to those families that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
