Ocala, FL – Operation: Cigars For Warriors announced today that it is conducting a fundraising drive from now until November 29th
(Giving Tuesday). CFW is rebuilding its operating capital from a dramatic drop in donations (cigars and operating funds) due to canceled events and shop closures – mainly driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Storm Boen, Chairman and CEO of Operation: Cigars for Warriors said: “On behalf of Operation: Cigars for Warriors, I encourage each and every one of you to spread the word about our organization and mission as we approach Giving Tuesday. In order to continue fulfilling our commitment to serving deployed men and women around the world, we will need a lot of support.”
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, CFW relies 100% on raffle ticket sales, cigar donations, generous cash donations, and grants to operate. Donation Centers, Event Coordinators, volunteers and supporters are encouraged to share this information with their networks and encourage direct donations to CFW through the website, by designating Operation: Cigars for Warriors as the selected charity on Amazon Smile.
Operation: Cigars for Warriors is a registered 501(c)3 charity operating nationwide whose mission is to provide premium cigars and cigar accessories to US troops serving in active combat zones. Since 2012, over 1.2 million cigars have been donated to US servicemen and women, in addition to coffee, magazines, cigar lighters and cutters.
