Operation Helmet is a nonpartisan, 501(c)3 charitable grassroots effort that provides helmet upgrade kits free of charge to U.S. troops in harm’s way. Operation Helmet depends on tax-deductible donations which can be of any amount and can be designated for a specific military service, a particular unit or an individual troop. For $35 per helmet, added safety and comfort can be provided for a troop. Over 99% of donations go toward helmet kits. There are no salaries or payroll costs deducted and Operation Helmet’s books are available for inspection.
