Soldiers' Angels
September 11, 2013

WOW ...what not to say about this great non profit...started by a Mom... Patty Patton-Bader when her son was deployed. From that first group of ladies that helped write letters and send packages to deployed....the ranks of volunteers have grown from all over the world. I had adopted 8-10 deployed soldiers over the years...have sent 100's of signed xmas cards for the stockings, sent many one time boxes until a soldier would be adopted by his own angel. This non profit is 150% for our deployed, their families and our wonderful veterans. I now help at the local VA to get much needed personal hygiene items, cards, small gifts, etc for our Veterans. Would highly recommend anyone that wants to help the veterans...to try this group.

I am not involved in upper decision making policy...so I would have no idea if changes needed to be made...but I would love to see more funding for groups like this from big corporations, schools, etc to help them...to help the military, their families and the veterans. They give so much for the USA...they deserve a hand up.

Three Hots and a Cot
September 11, 2013

Started by JD Simpson, a handful of volunteers and his family.....this non profit has helped hundreds of would- be homeless veterans get back on their feet, kept a roof over their heads, pointed them in a positive direction and gave many veterans and their families....the hand UP that they needed.

This non profit works on a lot of personal donations, hard work and sweat to keep these men and woman of this area moving onward and upward.

They deserve any $$$ you can donate....any can food/household items, produce etc that your group, your Sunday School class, your Lions club, your neighborhood can collect for them. It is not that you have to give a lot to help....just give something....canned goods, coffee, toilet paper, a few $$$, etc.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more grants available to them for running these homes. I would offer more community involvement for supporting the homes, and I would welcome these veterans in the community by offering jobs. Three Hots now has a lawnservice of veterans....please consider having them earn their own money to support the houses by hiring them for fall clean up.
