I had been following Active Heroes events on Facebook back since 2012/2013, I realized this was the charity group I wanted to support. On one of our family vacations, we decided to drive through their town, stop in and pay them a visit. Meeting with Troy and Mareike that day showed me the compassion and care they have for our Military Men and Womem. They never once showed or displayed any high lifestyle of living through the people's donations. Just a great hearted and caring couple. This proved to me they made sure the funds were allocated to the people in need.
One of our family vacations included, joining in at the Family Retreat to work on clearing the property, trimming trees and building tables. While there, we even had the pleasure of doing a kids room and bathroom makeover for a husband and wife that were both in the National Guard. That in itself was great to see the joy it brought my kids, watching the little boys come home to a newly painted and decorated room.
The people I have met with and worked along side of, are all genuine and kind hearted people. On man especially that stood out, he was a disabled Army Vet and working right along side me at the retreat. That young mans name is Brian, he was an amazing young man with joy in his heart and a smile on his face. He too received a home make over himself funded by Active Heroes. When he realized how they helped him and his lovely bride with their new family, he was elated and humbled. He said it was hard to display or show signs of weakness by asking for help. He then realized Active Heroes is the real deal. Since 2013, I have made a number of donations, I have since included any tips from customers along with matching their contribution.
I have no doubt in my mind and heart that Active Heroes will use my donations appropriately for the bettering and well being of our Men and Women of our Armed Forces.
So for that alone, this is where I will always send my donations.

God Bless Active Heroes and their team for all they do.

God Bless the Men and Women of our Armed Forces.

I love my Active Heroes

I have been a part of Active Heroes now for almost a year and it has truly been a great experience! I signed up as a team leader and have held a Ruck March in my community, actually getting ready to have another! I have witnessed so much good come out of just our Ruck March alone, it has really opened the eyes of just how real PTSD and suicide rates are amount our veterans! My husband is an Iraq war veteran and suffers with PTSD, this program has helped him so much by just being active and helping me and meeting new people and also reuniting with some that he served with! Top notch non-profit and I look forward to many years working with them!

AS a mother of a soldier I am so comforted knowing that active heroes is here for my son. As a sister of a soldier I am also comforted knowing that my brother and his wife and child can rely on active heroes. Also as a daughter of a veteran it is comforting to know that my father and our family are illegible to use services provided by active heroes. I myself recently , literally have called in a state of panic and confusion and within minutes was greeted and comforted and given direction for help. It’s amazing the amount of help this extraordinary group of people can offer along with the willingness to help. We are blessed to have Active heroes!

Since day one, my family and I have loved this group & try to hrlp them out. They do so much for the Veterans. Every chance we can, we sing the praises for Active Heroes. We donate and ask our friends to donate to this excellent group. We also volunteer every year for their Stand at Attention Competition. Last year we even brought some of the local ROTC students with us. Can not say enough about this group. They ROCK!!!

Active Heroes has done so much for my husband and our family. Our first interaction with Active Heroes started when our family was chosen for a Room makeover. Not only did they finish a room for my husband that would be a man cave/ retreat place for him, but they also took notice that we didn’t have a functioning kitchen and re-did the entire kitchen for us! During that time Active Heroes became family to us. It was great for my Husband to have a verteran community he felt proud to be a part of. We loved helping them fundraise and felt like we could help this charity give to other veterans like they gave to our family. They are always just a phone call away and still help us whenever they can. When I was pregnant with my second child Troy and Mareike Yokum even brought Babies R Us gift cards so I could get what we needed for the baby. They are always checking on us to see how we are doing. They are a true blessing and I’m glad to have Active Heroes in our lives!

A++ non-profit. Very honest and genuine people who are passionate about their cause. After many years of seeing them grow, their community involvement has become second to none. I know that my donations are being used wisely and effectively. If looking for a non-profit to donate too, I highly recommend Active Heroes.

I've been a volunteer for this non-profit for many years. I've seen them turn their donations and in-kind gifts into lifesaving miracles for warriors battling depression and suicidal ideations. They're building a Military Family Retreat complete with life sustaining resources for anyone in a dark place. I wish I could give them a 7 out of 5. Amazing.
