Dear Heroes Among Us Family,
First of all, I would like to thank those of you who donated to our annual Ft. Hood Christmas For The Soldiers trip. Because of your generosity we exceeded our goal, which allowed us to put not just $200 in each soldier’s envelope, but $240. An extra $40 doesn’t sound like much, but to those young soldiers it is a big difference. Each soldier also received a Christmas food basket and a handmade beautiful blanket made by one of our volunteers (Julia Stewart).
We had 16 volunteers drive down with us to Ft. Hood and I think to a person, their experience interacting with our wounded warriors was phenomenal. Each volunteer got to spend some great one-on-one time with him or her, really making it very personal event.
Again, thank you for supporting our Christmas For The Soldiers program. As I mentioned before, Heroes Among Us is alive and well and planning our next fundraiser in the spring. It will be a one night fun event so as soon as we set a date, mark your calendars.
From all of us at Heroes Among Us, have a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.
President, Heroes Among Us
