Help us help others
Operation Paying it Forward’s (OPIF for short) impact has expanded throughout the years. This has truly allowed us to become ambassadors of service to others. OPIF is all made possible with the help of individuals, local and corporate business owners and volunteers, like you. Therefore, our mission for each year is to continue to grow, with greater capacity to help more people.
We are a 100% volunteer based nonprofit organization focused on helping residents throughout the Eastern Hillsborough and Western Polk County areas.
Because of this, nobody should ever feel left out from enjoying the holidays. Every year, our mission at Operation Paying it Forward is to provide Thanksgiving to families as well as Bless children with the gift of Christmas toys.
Operation Paying It Forward believes in being there for others. We have made little boys and girls battling cancer smile and lifted their precious little spirits, while they fight for their lives. We have brought comfort to moms, dads, and grandparents going through such difficult times with their little ones, as they battle the uncertainties of cancer.
We have shown our Veterans and First Responders that we appreciate their service, as true heroes in our community. We’ve put food on empty tables, shoes on bare feet, and kept families from living without electricity. We’ve gifted a cap and gown to a less fortunate graduate, provided aid to our local food bank, and other non-profit organizations in our communities. Those are just some of the ways we pay it forward.
