Review for Homefront Hugs Foundation, Inc., Ann Arbor, MI, USA
The name “Homefront Hugs” is a perfect description of this organization. It began 17 years ago, and literally grew from the heart of its amazing CEO, Alessandra Kellermann, and it touches as many hearts as possible. Every penny donated, as well as a few of her own, is spent doing whatever is needed most by as many veteran, active duty men, women and families as can be squeezed into the budget. If you’re at all familiar with our military, you know the wide range of their needs. From boxes filled with necessities sent to those deployed who have no family, to money for burial sent to surviving family who lack the means for a proper final farewell, and everything in between, that’s Homefront Hugs. Then there’s the veteran who recently started a landscaping business, only to have his tools stolen, and dreams shattered. A call went out for whatever assistance donors could provide. This resulted in the donation of several hundred dollars in gift cards for national home improvement stores, that allowed a grateful veteran to begin his business again. I have been and will continue to be a regular contributor. I urge others to give till it feels good, and I guarantee gifts to Homefront Hugs will allow you to feel exactly that way!
