Mission Statement

The Veteran Community continues to grow larger, older and more in need.  We want to fill the gap left by other services. With the help of good people, we make a difference in the lives of the Veterans around us.  

We owe a debt of gratitude to those who have fought for our freedom. And through our efforts we offer a tangible and enduring form of gratitude.

In 2013 the Maryvale Revitalization Corporation asked contractor Charlie Ellis to renovate the kitchen of a veteran in need. Charlie and others answered the call. The project provided all who participated with a great sense of accomplishment and desire to do even more for veterans in need. Shortly after, Operation Enduring Gratitude (OEG) was born.

An estimated 600,000+ veterans live in Arizona with many in need. Most are too proud to accept assistance and their challenges are unknown to others. Our vision is to bring a quality standard of home living to those that have served and sacrificed for their country and community. With your support we will not fail our veterans.

The success of Operation Enduring Gratitude (OEG) is based on connecting the community and organizations willing to contribute time, talent and resources with veterans in need. We build and update lists of volunteers, companies, skilled tradespeople and anyone who supports the mission. When a need is identified, OEG uses these lists to organize response and meet the needs of veterans. Contact us today and let us know how you can help. 

We are always looking for people, skilled tradesmen, groups, companies and ANYONE with a desire to help veterans. We welcome your assistance.
