Active Duty and Military Family Support
When a member of a family serves in the military, the whole family serves as well. We hope to provide resources for both the active duty servicemember and their family in their journey to serve their country.
With the generosity of the community, our members and others; we are able to send care packages to the troops in need. These include special packages at the holidays to send love and reminders of home as well as packages to fulfill specific needs of deployed troops.
The need is always great and support is appreciated.
