3 ways to support our troops on Memorial Day
As a military wife, I've experienced the benefits of military charities firsthand. And thanks to technology, all it takes is a simple click to get involved. So in honor of Memorial Day, here are 3 worthy military-related charities that help our troops every day with some awesome missions.
Each year, Operation Gratitude sends 100,000 care packages to service members deployed to hostile regions as well as children left behind. Your online donation helps them assemble and ship the packages, which include snacks, entertainment, and personal letters of thanks.
This amazing charity honors and assists severely injured Veterans and their families by helping facilitate the building of a home that allows them to live more independently at absolutely no cost to them. Simply choose a one-time donation or recurring (you can even donate stocks or mutual funds) and then decide which project you'd like your monies to support.
Operation Homefront meets myriad needs for military families, whether it's providing food and financial assistance, to things you don't always consider, like offering auto and home repair. Take a peek at the families currently in need, then make your donation online.
We're so thankful for the service our past and present military personnel have provided for our country. Happy Memorial Day!
