The Operation Sacred Response Foundation started as a local non- profit group through Reset Church in Marysville, Washington in October of 2012 upon the return of Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Anthony Juarez from Afghanistan. The group titled the community project as “Operation Desert Comfort” and began its service to troops deployed into harm’s way.
In November of 2012, with great expectations to sustain support to those in uniform, Anthony and 30 local volunteers offered their time and endless effort for the cause. Our first operation was held in his two bedroom home on 28 November 2012; which is now considered the organization’s Birthday. Since its first packing of 14 care packages, Operation Desert Comfort grew tremendously in a year and a half of service and was declared a Foundation through the United Charitable Program Foundation located in Virginia on 20 March 2014. Hence changing the name from Operation Desert Comfort to, “The Operation Warrior Comfort Foundation.
In 2016, The Operation Warrior Comfort Foundation transitioned to The Operation Sacred Response Foundation.
The Operation Sacred Response Foundation currently supports troops deployed into harm’s way and provides care back packs for homeless veterans at veterans centers across America.
