Operation Uplift was born out of a desire to send smiles to heroes far from home for the holidays. It all began in 2017 when Jason Simonin and Michelle “Mickey” Carlson teamed up to send holiday care packages to 69 service members with the 35th Infantry Division unit. From those humble beginnings their efforts quickly grew, and with the overwhelming support of communities far and wide, Operation Uplift has gone on to send over 7,000 care packages to deployed troops.
In this episode, Jason and Mickey share the story of how Operation Uplift began, their passion for the military community at home and abroad, and how people can get involved. Find out more about Operation Uplift at https://helpuplift.org.
