Providing military and veteran families with free access to sport and entertainment events.
We’re thrilled to offer this special program as a way to give back to those who have served our country. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to enjoy sports and entertainment events, and that includes our military families and veterans.
Since 2004, we’ve worked with professional and college sports teams, entertainment venues, and promoters to send thousands of troops, reservists, veterans, and their immediate families to events free of charge. We charge no service fees or mailing costs, and the tickets are absolutely free.
We are happy to receive tickets for various local entertainment events, including sports games, concerts, theater performances, etc. Whether you’re an individual, organization, or company, we welcome you to participate in our program.
If you’re a season ticket holder for any of the bay area sports teams or a subscriber to the opera, musical theatre, and other entertainment venues, you can donate tickets to our Tickets for Troops program. Your generous donation will give local military personnel, veterans, and their immediate families a chance to enjoy a fun and memorable experience.
Most people typically use TicketMaster to transfer tickets to us. Otherwise, log into your ticket holder account and forward/transfer the tickets to Operation: Care and Comfort using the following email:
You can mail them to:
Operation: Care and Comfort

We also welcome organizations and companies to show their support of our troops by donating funds, which we will use to purchase tickets for local military families. This is a great way to support families for the advertised Support Our Troops games (your gift is tax-deductible).

We’re proud to partner with northern California sports teams to hold military appreciation and Support Our Troops games.

We appreciate your understanding and encourage you to stay updated on our announcements and opportunities for upcoming events.
