Operation Blessing of Johnson County is a Faith-based organization whose mission is to share God's Word and His love, and to let that love flow through to those who are hurting and in need. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors and staffed by volunteers.

Throughout the year many churches and organizations will have food drives that help to stock the pantry shelves. We also receive funding from donations by individuals, churches, businesses, and many of our community organizations, such as United Way, King's Daughters, the Heritage Assembly Ball, and many others. Our organization is locally funded and not affiliated with the International Operation Blessing.

Operation Blessing was birthed in 1980 after realizing the overwhelming need of a place to supply food, clothing, and household items to those in emergency or stressful situations. Its mission began with only two large black garbage bags of clothing and some canned food, located in a storage room in the back of a Christian bookstore located at 210 S. Main Street in Cleburne, Texas.

As the ministry began to grow it was moved to several other locations; none of which had enough space to distribute larger items of need such as furniture. In October of 1994 the blessings that had been so freely given in the name of Jesus came back to the ministry in the form of a large facility which was donated by Eastern Heights Church.

It was the original church built by Pastor George Willis. Since that first day, Operation Blessing has served thousands of individuals in need and continues to bless many in our community.

Country music star Randy Rogers grew up in Cleburne, Texas, and is active supporter of Operation Blessing. Operation Blessing works diligently to aid and assist those in need in Johnson County.
