Now accepting donations for Operation Interdependence!

Bella Vista Homes is excited to be supporting our troops with Operation Interdependence!  Operation Interdependence has been around since 2001 and has donated more than 1,005,070 pounds (503 tons) of goods to military families and veteran organizations. The Civilian Rations that are donated are also called C-rats and are individual quart-sized baggies that contain the suggested items below. Inside of these rations is the most important part which is a letter from a person who hasn’t met the recipient but shows care and concern through their words.

Whats unique about operation interdepnendence is:

  • Instead of 100 boxes reaching 100 troops, with the OI system 100 boxes reach 2,500 troops thereby streamlining delivery, conserving resources and opening up the military mail system to allow needed equipment and letters from families to be a priority delivery.
  • OI boxes easily load on to supply transports including helicopters and Humvees.
  • The plastic baggies make distribution in theater as easy as “grab and go.”

You will find a drop box at each of our model homes. We have locations in San Antonio, New Braunfels, Converse, Universal City, and Cibolo. We are so greatful for your donation that when you give you will recieve a $500 certificate good twds options on your new home.  Here are some suggestions for your donations that would be greatly appreciated:
