I have worked with this wonderful organization in the past, and plan to again in the near future. It is a great cause and everyone can help on any level.
I believe that it is the right thing to do to donate to forgotten soldiers...who put their lives on the line for us so we can enjoy the freedoms we do.
My father was a vet, I moved to Florida with a vet , who has since passed away and I respect what these men have sacrificed for us.
My son is now on his 4th deployment since 2006. Every deployment, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has sent him and his brothers packages. I am very grateful towards the volunteers and the staff of FSO for sending him and the guys packages. As a military raised, military mom, I know that those packages mean a lot to the men and women that are deployed overseas. It boosts their morale knowing that complete strangers are thinking of them and put a ton of love into the packages they receive. I know that I cannot personally say thank you enough to these men and women that serve our country and leave their families and friends to defend our freedom. Thank you FSO for supporting them while they are away.
I think that this is a great organization to volunteer for. I have been with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach for 6 years they do good things for those that are keeping our country and people safe.
My kids and I have volunteered numerous times with this organization and I've never had anything but great experiences. When there, you can see how much heart, love and dedication this organization brings to helping the troops at home and overseas. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. Numerous times, they've had speakers come in to tell the volunteers just how much of a difference they make. While I find that the act of volunteering is rewarding in itself, actually seeing those it impacts personally creates a truly meaningful connection that makes a powerful impact on myself and my kids. Thank you, FSO, for making a difference everyday!
FSO is an organization that gives to our military every day. Without FSO some military personnel would not receive care packages or any mail. FSO and all their volunteers put together packages with love anf care. Love FSO.❤️❤️❤️❤️
My son deployed. Life at home was stressed with new babies, medical issues and family far away. I asked ONCE for help. My son received a package, ....Wait his troop received packages! ALL WHILE ....the lady dealt with some serious private issues of her own.
This organization helped me and my deployed son when I couldn't send what he needed or what his Unit wanted. They didn't ask questions other than the normal security questions which are APPRECIATED...but they stepped up and helped an entire unit!!!!
One of the most caring and amazing non profits ever taking care of our military! I have had the honor of volunteering and collecting for FSO and would do it any time - all the time! The time spent by everyone for FSO is such a blessing! Love FSO!
FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HEADING FUNDRAISER EVENTS FOR FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS. THEY PROVIDE SUCH A MUCH NEEDED SERVICE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY. THERE ARE MANY INDIVIDUALS IN THE BATTLEFIELDS AND BEHIND THE LINES THAT HAVE NO CONTACT FROM HOME AND NEED A BOOST TO THEIR MORAL AND GIVE THEM MUCH NEEDED SUPPLIES AND TREATS. THIS ORGANIZATION GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO PROVIDE AS MANY ITEMS AS NEEDED.
For some time i had been trying to find a way to write notes to soldiers. I had sent letters out on my own to another group who would then send them along to some one some where. However, with this site, i really feel sure that my letter will actually get to a soldier who really might want and need the mail. Since i started writing last year i have sent at least 5 letters. I go on the site and i can see the thanks and pictures from the men and women who receive the letters and care packages. It is great to know that my letters are being sent, and to see the faces and read the words and be able to know i might have made a tiny difference for one of them. I don't need the thanks, but i like to know that the ones who serve us are getting what we send. I was fortunate enough to have enough extra money this year that i was able to donate a little, and just knowing that a smile is out there because someone got cookies, or deodorant, or a razor, or something they need fills my heart. This is one of the best organizations i have ever seen. I just wrote another letter before writing this review, and i am so happy to say i will continue to write as often as i can, thanks to this great crew who works tirelessly to get our troops the things they need from home. They are doing a wonderful job and i am proud to be able to use their site and to have donated to them this year.
This organization goes above and beyond to serve our military overseas and at home! It is extremely rewarding to take part in the packing events and making donations. The response from the recipients is outstanding. I am so proud of Lynelle and her crew for their hard work and determination to make sure we all never forget OUR soldiers and all that they do!
Supporting FSO is an easy way to thank our men and women overseas that are protecting our freedom every day.
