HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
February 10, 2011
I love working with the Hugs Project because it provides me with a great way to give simething back to the men and women serving in harm's way to provide me with the freedoms I enjoy every day. I can use my everyday skills to create things useful to others. The care packages we put together contain common supplies we take for granted here in the US, but which may be impossible to get where our service men and women are posted on foreign soil. When was the last time you had to go without basic hygiene supplies like toothpaste, shampoo, or soap? I know I would be lost without them. I can't imagine living in a tent (or less) and not having access to the simplest things. The Hugs Project is filling a big void and the volunteers who serve are wonderful supporters of our troops. I highly recommend this organization to anyone who wants to help our sons and daughters survive their service abroad.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the many letters from troops who have received our care packages. I do not have a son or daughter currently serving, but I have had a son in the Navy and I know how much he enjoyed receiving a care package from the states.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make the facility open and available six days a week instead of three.
Volunteer & I made "hugs" (cooling ties) and helped with care package packing.
