About Us

Operation Clothing Drop Inc. was founded by U.S. Army Veteran Rowan Laidlaw.  OPCD is a non-profit charged with providing resources for homeless veterans in Nassau County, NY.  The resources provided include educational training, food, clothing, housing, counseling and more.  Laidlaw served the country proudly for four years both domestically and abroad in Iraq.  He always had a deep passion about the plight of fellow veterans.  This passion has led him to research ways to help those in need on a consistent basis.  His research yielded a stunning revelation of a high number of displace veterans requiring assistance.  Laidlaw believes this is a the best way that as a veteran he can give back to his fellow brothers and sisters who served in combat.  "Everyone did not have things such as a family, resources, career or even a home when they came back," he said. "As military personnel, we sacrifice our lives for the freedom of the United States of America.  No veteran should ever come back and live an impoverished life."


Operation Clothing Drop (OPCD) was established in 2014 to support and assist veterans with housing, food, clothing and other necessities.  The organization also provides emergency, transitional and long term housing placement.  In addition, OPCD provides assistance with employment search, placement in educational programs along with counseling services.  Our service delivery concentration targets homeless veterans sleeping on the streets, in the shelters or crashing with relatives in the Nassau County community. 


We firmly believe in the 'plan and execute' mantra of helping veterans.  We collaborated with various sponsors and community partners to raise awareness, generate resources and develop solutions and remedies.  This organization does not thrive on problems just so we can keep a job, we thrive on solving the problem with actions that yield results.  Our strategic partnerships include working with various vendors such as Lion's Roar Entertainment.  These strategic partnerships work with us to raise funds to boost our resources.  


Furthermore, we don't create co-dependency with our programs, we govern from the 'stepping stone, helping hand' mindset.  We strive to get veterans back on their feet and full transitioned back into civilian life. OPCD wants veterans to earn a steady income and have a roof over their heads.  In the path to obtaining such, we shall provide resources along the way.  Two signature projects developed are Operation Drive By and Operation Full Metal Jacket. 


Civilians and veteran are welcomed to add to the many hands needed to make light work.  Veterans will especially enjoy this as they can relate to others from combat and provide many reference points.  There is life after combat and we are here to provide that.
