Hours of boredom filled with moments of pure explosive action. This is the life of a service member. Their time is taken up with extensive training in preparation for those decisive moments. We can help them prepare!
As media attention moves to the latest news event, we could slowly forget the ongoing sacrifices made by our military heroes and their families. There are approximately 40,000 American service members who remain in harm’s way in Afghanistan, making sacrifices to protect us… our families… and our freedom.
Soldiers of an Infantry Combat Team will soon be heading to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring freedom. Healing Heroes Ministries wants to encourage, honor and help prepare them and their families for the challenges ahead.
We have launched a care package campaign, Operation Foot Soldier Support, to encourage and prepare these heroes of the Infantry Combat Team. Each care package will also contain 4 gift cards – a VONS food card, gas card, movie card, and a Target store card valued at $25 for each card. These cards will be given to lower ranking enlisted soldiers who need it most.
$15,000 is urgently needed to get these care packages to our troops prior to their deployment. The average cost per relief package is around $150, so your gift of $50 would cover a third of a care pack, $150 helps one family and $300 covers costs of helping two families. One hundred percent of these donated funds will go directly to these families and package preparation.
This situation in Afghanistan is sobering as the April presidential election will go to a second round in June after no one candidate garnered more than 50% of the vote… but you can do something for our heroes who are deploying there. Our team and partners are already in place delivering not only basic necessities, but hope that someone remembers and cares. All that’s needed are the resources to keep this ministry going!
As they march into battle for freedom, they march against the gates of hades for a higher cause… we ask you to join us to honor their unquestioned loyalty to this great nation.
Please join us once again in “Serving Those Who Sacrifice.” Our mission is to heal our heroes… one at a time, so please give the gift of hope to one, two or more of our nation’s heroes today! Donations can be made securely through our web site or sent to our office in Anaheim. Please put “Operation Foot Soldier Support” in the comment line online or the memo line of your check.
Thank you and God bless you for your prayers and support of Healing Heroes Ministry and the heroes we serve and support.
