My husband and I have assisted The Hugs Project for four or five years by supplying needed supplies and when health permits, working at their facility. They touch so many soldiers lives with the work they do and it is staffed entirely by volunteers. We heartily recommend this group as a very worth while organization.

I heard about The Hugs Project accidently and filled out a form for my nephew who was stationed in Iraq at the time. He received a package and was very excited to share it with his fellow squad. The contents of the package was just what he needed at the time;kool aid powders to put in their thermos was a great addition. The beef jerky,cd's flashlight and more goodies to eat. Thank you so very much The Hugs Project.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the volunteers shipping off boxes to the troops (100 people) is so heartwarming. Many came to help,even a state congressman. It was a massive job to pack and tape and label 1400 boxes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The volunteers are a great group of people. They have formed a very close group of concerned citizens. If someone is living alone and lonely, this a terrific place to make friends.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

not have to scrample to find funds for shipping. Most of the ingredients in the boxes are donated. It is extremely difficult to find the funds for some items that are too expensive to be donated and to ship more and more boxes.

It has been my privilege to participate in my small way sewing "HUGS" for The Hugs Project. It amazes me that what started as basically a "one woman show" (Karen Stark) now has over 2000 members nationwide and serves troops all over the world.

I had been looking for a way to support the troops since my husband, who had been in Viet Nam, came home. I drove to Tacoma, WA, to keep him from experiencing the jeers and taunts of the crowds at the air field. I googled and found "cool ties" and The Hugs Project came up. I knew that was the way!! I thank the Lord each day for what we can do to keep the troops safe from Heat Stroke and send our love to them in Care packages.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The desire we all have to support the troops, spend time and donate to efforts to see to it that they are given all they need and want to know they are heroes to us. The thank you letters we receive show us that we are on the right track.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learning to know some of our troops via email and share their families holidays, their hopes for when they return home, the care they have for each other, that they are genuine people with needs and wants and loves!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the most giving, committed, encouraging people I've ever known. They are always thinking of ways to meet needs that will encourage and give joy to the troops.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

supply the needs and wants of every troop in the war zone and have enough left over to begin to fill the needs of the native people of the land. What an idea!!!!
