Mission: Jessica’s Hope Project is a newly founded 501 c 3 non-profit organization that focuses on sending fitness-oriented care packages overseas to all branches to the military in many different parts of the world. It started with a simple email to the CEO of 24 Hour Fitness. We are now trying to raise money to cover the shipping of care packages overseas to our deployed military.
The average deployed military individual loses 50 pounds of body weight per deployment (information from the United States Marine Corp). Our goal is to keep this from happening by providing protein bars, muscle milk and vitamin supplements to as many military individuals as possible to maintain their physical well being and mental sharpness. By doing so, we are increasing the odds of our military not only doing their physical and mental best as they fight for our country but also coming home to their families and loved ones in better shape than in the past wars when these products were not readily available.
Results: Total number of boxes shipped as of 5/4/13: 1429
Jessica's Hope Project is well run and trustworthy. She works tirelessly on behalf of the military day in and day out and is always searching for new ways to improve her organization and increase the support she sends our troops. As a small, newer non-profit she makes a far greater impact in our community than many others I've seen and she should be commended. Long after others have forgotten the impact a package can make... she remembers!
Fantastic group. I've seen their work and dedication and it's unmatched. I highly recommend this as a group to volunteer for and to support. Our troops need them... and we as the public need them to help where we fall short.
Jessicas Hope Project brought so much joy to my husband and all of his troops while deployed. I contacted her about sending one care package, and she kept his address and continued to send more. Jessica and everyone that helps her do this really are heroes. They are not just sending care packages, they are sending love, kindness, and appreciation, and that sticks with the troops forever. Thank you JHP. -Samantha Perkins
