My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hugs Project Incorporated, Oklahoma City, OK, USA
My Father was career Navy, having served in the "Silent Service" in WWII, Korea, Vietnam. He was a Naval Recruiter during the Vietnam war. I saw first hand how poorly many treat those who serve to keep us free and vowed to do all in my power when I had a chance to make sure those who serve now know how important they are and how much we support them. When I volunteer every week I see men and women of all ages and all back grounds working together to do just that and am so thankful to be given the opportunity to volunteer at Hugs. The best days at Hugs are when any of my Grandchildren are able to go with me - they learn first hand about the sacrifices our military makes.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Reading the thank you letters from our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq describing how thankful they are for the smallest of things we put in the packages and how proud they are to be able to serve America brings not only fresh tears each week but also fresh determination to do all possible to make sure we are able to send out even more packages to them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to get more funding so we can send more packages. The Post Office charges US 12.95 per package - we send 1,000s of packages so are constantly trying to find enough money to send all the packages that are so desperately needed by our troops.
