We are an all-volunteer organization -- no donations are used to pay staff
All of our overhead costs are covered by Board of Director members, t-shirt/hat sales and reward incentives through companies such as AmazonSmile and iGive. We operate out of our homes and a small storage space to be able to cover operational costs independent of donations made to support the service members we serve.
Our efforts are a community effort: school clubs, church groups, service organizations, individuals, businesses, and whole families come together to show support.
Roughly 40% of our donations are in the form of collected goods: toiletries, food, towels, toys, gifts, furniture, baby items, etc.
Roughly 25% of our donations are monetary donations made by individual donors
Roughly 25% of our donations are corporate contributions or employee match contributions
