"OUR VETERANS NEED OUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER"
Since 2014, led by founder Kenda Echols, caring volunteers have procured, packed and shipped hundreds of care packages to service members from our area. Paying for all the thoughtful items included in the packages is achieved through donations and fundraising.
Our fundraising goal is anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 annually, an amount that is enough to pay for over 100 care packages.
This year, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are running a little behind but still want to support our local military. We plan to ship approximately 50 Care packages in mid November to active duty military with local ties with a emphasis on deployed and/or enlisted youngsters who may be in need of a morale boost or taste of home.
Any additional funds are directed toward special request care packages or are donated to a military cause such as the PTSD Foundation in Houston, Texas.”
"I received your care package today. I can't post pictures from my location, but thank you so very much."
