HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
February 11, 2011
Not only does this organization help and support troops in need of simple yet scarce supplies, but they also provide a fun and social environment for those with little to do or those who just need a reason to get out of the house. These people are literally some of the nicest people anyone could ever meet. If you need some community service hours, they're there to help. If you wanna get out of the Lazy-Boy and do somethin productive, they're there to provide. If you want to help out the troops over seas fighting for our freedom, whether they are a relative, a loved one, or just a friend, the Hugs project is the place to be. I personally love every moment I'm there, packing care packages, ironing hugs, or even bagging up chocolate. There's many jobs available, creative jobs for the kids and even simple jobs like sowing and ironing for those who need to sit and still be productive.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've witnessed the impact the original founders, Karen and Ray Stark, have made on those with loved ones over seas and even veterans that stop by. The stories held within Karen Stark are strong enough to pull a tear from even the manliest soldier.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Invite more and more people because we can never have too much help.
Volunteer & I pack care packages to send to troops, assort candies and snacks into baggies, clean work areas, etc.
