The helicopter ball drop is another way we enable people and organizations to help us achieve our goals. We raise money for the Operation Peer Support Program of the Blinded Veterans Association (BVA). The BVA is an organization of blinded veterans helping blinded veterans. It is a non-profit federal Veterans Service Organization (VSO). The funds raised help support the BVA service program, Operation Peer Support (OPS). OPS provides "connectedness" for visually impaired and war blinded veterans which leads to increased social contact, sense of belonging, sense of self-worth, and access to many sources of support. We hope to make life better for blinded veterans.
