I am honored to work with such wonderful people who work extremely hard getting things done for our soldiers in harm way. With the letters and pictures that we get makes us know that what we do give them a little bit of home. Being a Navy wife and a Marine mom (daughter) it make me feel good to be able to do this work.

As a staff member of Feed The Children, we cannot say enough about The Hugs Project. It is a little TLC from home. They are well organized and have a great volunteer base. It also helps give family members peace of mind knowing their loved ones are receiving a care package to lift their spirits while they are serving our country. We are proud to partner with The Hugs Project.

Having been the Commander of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, I am an ardant supporter of the amazing work that "The Hugs Project" does for our soldiers and airman. The volunteers, the leadership, the dedication to keep those defending American aware that folks at home appreciate their sacrifices. They are a 4 star in my book.
