The mission of Operation Hug-A-Hero® (OHAH) is to help comfort the children of our American Heroes working valiantly in support of our nation’s homeland security by providing them with a free Hug-A-Hero® doll.
Our purpose is to ensure that each child in our Hug-A-Hero program has a tangible, available and comforting connection to his/her “hero” while that hero is serving our nation away from home, at home in harm’s way, or, if fallen, for a lifetime.
The vision of Operation Hug-A-Hero is to provide a Hug-A-Hero doll to every child, regardless of need, of a deploying or fallen military service member and those who support our nation’s homeland security efforts in a proactive and timely manner.
This vision will be fulfilled via a coordinated, systematic and self-sustaining process with the Department of Defense (DoD) and related entities, municipalities and first response organizations that informs Operation Hug-A-Hero of family needs such that they can be served by our program.
