I work at a nursery school in NJ and we wanted to do something for a military family during this past holiday season. I checked on my computer to see who we could help. I found Home Front Hearts and it seemed like the perfect choice. It was exactly what we were looking for. I contacted Ronnie Cairns and asked how and what we could do to help one or more of these military families. She responded with several suggestions and we decided to go with purchasing items for a family of her choice. The families connected with our school responded with "open hearts". We were able to purchase toys, bedding, shoes and a computer. We were also able to make two truck payments and one mortgage payment. We were truly honored to do this. It was such a positive experience for all the children who attend our school. They helped gather and sort all the items and pack and ship them off. I must say that everyone connected and involved with this non-profit organization are wonderful, caring people. We hope to do this again this year.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Very helpful and experienced.
