Ep 51 – Operation Not Alone

On today’s episode of the GIVE podcast, we are thrilled to welcome Susan Fochs, the founder of Operation Not Alone.  Susan started this nonprofit when she was18 years old and felt compelled to take charge and make a difference in the lives of servicemen and women.  Her journey was inspired by her father, who served in the US Marine Corps and is now permanently disabled.  She’s made it her mission to create an organization that exists in the hope that no one feels alone both during and after their deployment.

On today’s episode of the GIVE podcast, we are thrilled to welcome Susan Fochs, the founder of Operation Not Alone.  Susan started this nonprofit when she was18 years old.  She felt compelled to take charge and make a difference in the lives of servicemen and women.  Her journey was inspired by her father, who served in the US Marine Corps and is now permanently disabled.  She’s made it her mission to create an organization that exists in the hope that no one feels alone both during and after their deployment.

Operation Not Alone sends care packages, cheer packages, and participates in nursing home visits. To this day, they have sent over a thousand packages and that number continues to grow!  They work hard with the families of deployed service people to make sure that the packages are something that brings joy to each person that receives them.

Operation Not Alone aspires to empower community members to make a positive change by taking part in our programming and saying, ‘thank you for your service’ in a variety of ways. They want every man and woman in uniform to know that, no matter what they are facing, they are never alone and they will never be forgotten for their dedication, sacrifice, and service.
