Operation: Military Matters
Operation: Military Matters (OMM) started as an idea for a school project by Graci Tubbs, who at the time was a 9-year-old in the fourth grade. After hearing and seeing veterans speak at a school Veterans Day assembly, Graci felt the need to support our military and let the men and women sacrificing their lives for us know people back home cared about them. What started out as a school project collecting supplies from the community and sending care packages from home to our military overseas, grew into a nonprofit. In December 2016, OMM became a corporation, and on March 16, 2016, it became a 501 (c) (3).
Over the last few years, Sagicor has teamed up with OMM — donating supplies and volunteer hours to help the organization in its efforts to send care packages overseas to our military.
In November 2021, Sagicor hosted its very own Packing Party. Sagicor purchased all of the various supplies and non-perishable items for each care package, and team members in Scottsdale wrote 200 personalized “thank-you/appreciation” messages to be inserted in each package. OMM members then joined us in the Tampa office to assemble and pack 200 care packages that were delivered to servicemembers overseas.
