HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
August 14, 2014

I have helped The Hugs Project for 6 years, it is a great organization that helps our troops overseas. I started when my brother was deployed and never left, that one box turned into hundreds of boxes for our troops. I love to read the Thank You notes we get back and how much they appreciate the little things we send. Most of the little things we send, we at home take for granted and don't think about being in the middle of nowhere and not having toothpaste or toothbrush. I love working with the other volunteers! We have a great time and able to support our troops!

I went to pack a box for my brother 4 years ago and never left. Everyone is a volunteer and we support all branches of the military. We support our troops year round averaging 50 a week and 5000 at Christmas.

HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
March 18, 2010

I have been with The Hugs Project since last year and have packed boxes for the troops during Christmas. My brother recently returned home from Iraq and received packages from The Hugs Project. This is a great organization supporting our troops overseas, I plan to continue to help in any way I can by volunteering each week.

The Great!

More feedback

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

meeting the people who dedicate their time to helping the troops overseas, knowing we are making a difference in the lives of the soldiers overseas.

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

fantastic and helpful, they take you right in and make you feel like family.

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

make sure all soldiers had support from home and we would have the means to pay postage and get merchandise that they need.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
