Caring for Our Troops!!!
Organized by: Callie Geary
EVENT DATE Dec 12, 2014
Last year, I purchased a couple hundred toys, board games, puzzles, craft kits, stuffed animals, card games, etc and donated them to active duty Military, Veteran and Wounded Warrior families in the Fort Knox, KY area. I was able to help over 20 families with my donations alone. Being able to help truly warmed my heart but I want to help more. There are more families that need help! In order to have a bigger impact and give to more families and children, I need your help.
Together, we can give back to those that have given so much of themselves protecting our country and our freedoms.
Military members and their families make so many sacrificies. Some military members sacrifice their life, some are injured, some are missing in action, and all sacrifice time with their loved ones. Each military family sacrifices time with loved ones and all too often spouses and children take on additional responsibilities to help fill the shoes of the military member while they're deployed or once they return if they're injured. Suicide rates amoung the military members and veterans are more than double the civilian suicide rates. Christmas can be a very depressing time especially when the family is not financially able to give just a few items to their children. Christmas should be about family, love, laughter and giving. I have become very passionate about giving back to the military families. It may seem like only a few gifts but it could be a life changing experience to the military member. Being able to see their child smile on Christmas day, would be the gift you are giving to them. It's time we start giving back to them. I need your help to reach more families. I am only one person but together, we can do this!
