I enjoyed shopping for my hero. It would be helpful when assigning hero's if personal information was also given such as size and intersts. I have sent boxes with no response from my recipient and I am running out of ideas.

I enjoyed buying and fixing the boxes for my HERO. It made me feel good. I did not hear from MY HERO so I don't know how he felt. I also asked for another HERO and did not get one. I was asked to help at an event but it was at night an I don't drive at night and it was a long distant from my house.

I have really enjoyed sending the boxes to my soldier. Just knowing that I helped a little bit makes me feel good. they are so far away from home and need all the help we can send.

I have been attempting to volunteer with HeroBox for about nine months. I have contacted HeroBox multiple times via their website, using their specific links, to volunteer my services, and to inquire about how to participate. Every inquiry went unanswered. I never heard from HeroBox until about two days ago when I seem to have suddenly made their mailing list. I know this sounds harsh, but the instructions directly to the right of this data field specifically tell me to "be honest and candid." It prompts me to "provide details and specific examples." If HeroBox needs someone to volunteer to answer emails, I am willing to do that. I'm just not sure how long I should knock on the door. Thank you for this opportunity to share.

I've only been sending boxes for two months now and the only thing I don't enjoy is Saturday at the post office! The solider I have adopted is wonderful. He's told be all about his wife and family and how they came to be and I feel prevledged to know him. This is an excellent program and people who see me sending a Hero Box in the post office ask about what I am doing and I happily share, so there should be more people joining. I'm in the process of trying to get my office and my mother's school involved. I would sugeest more advertising to get more volunteers. I can so just so much with workd of mouth, but if you come up with some car magnets, I would proudly display them.

Good Afternoon, I worked with Herobox in late 2009 in Tyrone, GA to raise funds and awareness of the mission of the charity. Each person I dealt with at Herobox was a true professional and always put the mission of the organization first. Beyond that, all the family and friends associated with Herobox were genuinely great people and great Americans. I hope others will check out HEROBOX today, they are doing great things for our troops.

Have enjoyed sharing a little bit of home with the soldiers. They do so much to provide us with the freedom we take for granted.
