The Honor to serve and defend America’s freedoms world-wide or serve as America’s First Responders in desperate times of need, often results in both physical and emotional sacrifice by the many brave women and men serving to protect us all as well as their families who also sacrifice along with them here or abroad.
The Commanding Officers of the various military bases in the area have told us how important our mission is and how great the impact has been on the many military families that have been through the program. As a result we have significantly expanded our goals for 2019. Our desire is to have 100 Military families ….200 First Responder families ….100 American Gold Star familes…..experience our program.
To accomplish this we must raise $2,350,000 in 2019. Cost for the three different support groups varies based on the location they travel from and the size of family coming. Costs are projects as follows:
* Military families…………………….$4000 per family
* First Responder families ………$6500 per family
* Gold Star families …………………$6500 per family
We truly need your support so we can serve those that serve everyday to protect our freedom and security.
