Sometimes you hear a story that just warms your heart! We want to deliver those stories to you every Friday in our new segment called FriYay Feelings!
This week we focuses on a story that makes you believe in humanity! LeAnn Boudwine is a mother that would send care packages to her sons in 2007 when they were deployed overseas. Once her sons told her that several service men & women they know do not receive the same kind of gifts or gifts at all, she knew she had to do something. Fast forward 10 years later, she has sent her 10,000th box full of care overseas.
She felt compelled to begin this because many people are in the military to support their families & cannot afford to send care packages. She set out to raise money, collect supplies & have enough volunteers to continue sending packages long after her sons made it home. There are several ways to help, you can drop off items here. Not sure what to send? They have a wish list. They will also accept your time or monetary donations!
Read all about there efforts & more @ http://www.supportthetroopswi.com/. We applaud you LeAnn & are thankful for people like you & all those that support this wonderful cause & our military!
