The mission of Operation LOVE is to HONOR “unclaimed” veterans at their funerals, CONNECT volunteers with Elgin area veterans in need, and STRENGTHEN existing Elgin area veterans’ service organizations by promoting their events, volunteer opportunities and fundraisers.
Veterans and civilians alike are encouraged to participate. The LOVE in Operation LOVE is an acronym for “Love Our Veterans Elgin.”
Operation LOVE volunteers will participate in future community funerals for “unclaimed veterans” held at Symonds-Madison Funeral Home. Volunteers will also be connected with local opportunities to serve our veterans and support nonprofits that serve our veterans.
