Robby and I feel so fortunate for our health, our careers, our families and our happiness. On our wedding day we would like to share a piece of our joy with a deserving military charity, Operation Homefront.
Operation Homefront provides emergency assistance and morale to our troops, to the families they leave behind, and to wounded warriors when they return home. Operation Homefront leads more than 4,500 volunteers in 30 chapters nationwide. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has provided critical assistance to more than 105,000 military families in need. Some of their most outstanding accomplishments are: more than 5 million dollars provided to military families in crises; goods and services valued at more than 6.5 million dollars to assist military families; and an excess of 20,000 care packages delivered to soldiers abroad with an additional 2,500 packages delivered to military families at home. They also are top ranked on Charity Navigator.com.
They have local chapters, including one for the Tri-State. There is a current need of $2,500 to provide medical assistance, groceries, baby needs and car service repairs for the New York chapter. This will be our goal to raise the funds for them. Even a small donation of $10 will help us reach our goal to assist local veterans in need.
We look forward to sharing our wedding day with you! We also look forward to sharing our good fortunes with others.
