As an all volunteer organization, we depend on people like YOU, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get the information you want most.
As a "mom and pop" non profit, our programs are only successful because volunteers help us collect needed supplies and help us spread the word when we have a need for donations beyond what we have on hand. Our "donation needs action alerts" are alerts we send out when we are running low on needed supplies or donations are needed to support families in need or our programs.
We hope these action alerts will help get the word out to folks like you with a heart for our military who can help us spread the word. Examples of donations needed alerts:
A family has lost their home to fire-- we would send out specific donations needed for the family and information for those who want to give online.
A large unit is returning home and we are low on much needed supplies like shaving cream, towels, food, etc.
A camp JOY is coming up and we are short on needed snacks and food for the kids.
These alerts are more specific than our general wish lists---- these are focused on our greatest needs when they are mission critical or beyond our means at the time.
