In a Nutshell

Donations to provide a beach vacation to help a veteran reconnect with his or her family after returning home from deployment

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Operation R&R Charleston. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Stress from Returning Home from Deployment

Though military deployment presents a range of stresses for families, returning home can be equally difficult as family members struggle to get reacquainted with one another. Vacations can give spouses and children the time they need to reconnect after a veteran returns home, helping to prevent familial strife.

The Campaign: Funding Beach Vacations for Veterans

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then Operation R&R Charleston can fund a beach vacation for a veteran and his or her family. Between September and May, families spend four to seven nights at donated beach houses in Charleston, where they are greeted with a full fridge, a grocery gift card, maps, and a directory of local businesses offering discounted services. Each additional $400 raised will fund a vacation for another veteran and his or her family.

Operation R&R Charleston

Operation R&R was recently founded to help military members reconnect with their families after returning home from overseas deployment. As its first affiliate, Operation R&R Charleston works with local residents, who donate their beach homes and villas in Charleston during the off-season. Volunteers make reservations for families and furnish beach houses with food, maps, a grocery gift card, and a directory of local businesses offering discounted services. During the four- to seven-night vacations, families can take advantage of the discounts to explore restaurants and recreational activities, all while enjoying valuable quality time together.
