My family became associated with Boot Campaign as many do, through one of their awesome fundraising events. After Kelsey left the Marines after ten years, there were some discrepancies between the VA and DOD and receiving the final pay and VA disability pay. We made due as was possible through the support of our family, but the days turned into months without any correction to our financial issue. After a few months, Kelsey reached back out to Boot Campaign without knowing where else to go, as a family we had less than a quarter gallon of milk in our refrigerator, no gas in our cars to get to my two part-time jobs, and months behind on our new lease. Boot Campaign provided for us enough to get us back on our feet, handling a few of our necessity bills and giving us some gift cards to put gas in our cars and food in our home. Our relationship with Boot Campaign continued to grow from that point, attending more events and eventually Kelsey was invited to become a Veteran Ambassador for them. As Kelsey was graduating from college, he was offered a full time job with Boot Campaign and he now has a direct impact on helping fellow veterans through the ReBOOT program. We will get our #BootsOn (and bug shoes) for the upcoming 5k in Keller and would love to have your support to help other families within the veteran community.
