EDIT: WE DID IT! WE WON! THANK YOU!!
As you may know Operation Yellow Ribbon is an all-volunteer 501c3 US Service Member support group that sends over 50,000 pounds of morale boosting care packages each year to our brave women and men serving in the US Armed Forces and deployed to the Middle East.
OYR is truly inspired by the activism of Pearl Jam and the amazing give and take relationship between the fan and the band.
We've had many Pearl Jam fans or family members of forum members here be care package recipients in the past.
So many of you have helped in the past and have been beyond generous. With that said, I come here asking for your help again today:

We truly need your help. We try not to ask for too much during the year but this is a time we TRULY NEED YOUR HELP.
We are beyond thrilled to announce that Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey is one of four finalists for this year's Wawa Foundation Hero Award! OYR has a 1 in 4 chance of winning $50,000 which will truly help us with our mission of providing morale boosting care packages and smiles to our brave U.S. Military Personnel deployed to the Middle East.
