OPSEND EASTER

OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER is here!

OPERATION S.E.N.D EASTER is one of the many projects that Military Missions, Inc undertakes each year in an effort to Send Encouragement to our Nation’s Deployed.  Military Missions Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting our military, our veterans, and their families on a year round basis.

“If someone is serving in the military on our behalf, then we are going to be sure to offer support and encouragement to them no matter what time of the year it happens to be,” says Military Missions Inc founder, Beth Pennington.  “As we celebrate Easter with our families, our troops will not have the opportunity to be with their loved ones.  Instead they will be standing watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties.  Each one is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and an American.  Let’s join together and send our troops some encouragement as well as our thanks.”

There are a number of ways in which people can get involved in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER.  Military Missions, Inc. will be accepting donations in the form of care package items, personal cards and letters written to the troops, and monetary donations to cover the postage needed to mail packages overseas.

Schools, churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals from all over the USA participate in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER.  To find out how you can get involved in this endeavor, visit https://military-missions.org.

You may contact the organization via email at info@military-missions.org, or by calling or texting 859-221-9477.  Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the office located in the Millpond Shopping Center at 3650 Boston Road, Suite 138, Lexington, Kentucky 40514.

The care package assembly night will be on Wed., March 15, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. This will allow time for the packages to reach the deployed troops for Easter.  Due to limited office space, if you are interested in attending the care package assembly, please click here to register.

If you know of someone who will be deployed during the Easter holiday this year, they can be added to the care package mailing list at www.military-missions.org/add-a-hero/

DONATION SUGGESTION LIST

MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION

Thanks for Making 2016 a Success!

You deserve a pat on the back!

In 2016, you made it possible to ship care packages to thousands of deployed service men & women. As a matter of fact, we hit a new record. In years past, we have hovered around the 6,000 package mark. However, last year, we were able to serve our troops by sending… (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)….. 7,000 care packages!!

Again, “Buddy Boxes” were sent during the Christmas season to ensure we reached as many deployed troops as possible. We have received many thank you notes and letters. It is so heart warming to read their letters, and it’s VERY clear that receiving a care package makes their day a little better!

We want to thank anyone and everyone who was involved in any way. None of this would be possible without YOU!  While our list of deployed Heroes continues to grow, so does our passion and determination to assure that every single one of them receives a care package.

Thank you for partnering with Military Missions, Inc. to support and encourage those that ensure freedoms known only to Americans.  We invite you stay tuned and help us make 2017 even better!

Honoring Our Veterans

honor vets webToday, we observe Veteran’s Day. Many people believe that Veteran’s Day  is the day to honor military personnel who died in battle or from wounds obtained during combat. However, that day would actually be Memorial Day.

Veteran’s Day is honoring ALL American veterans, living and dead. It is a chance to say “THANK YOU” to our living veterans and to show them our appreciation. In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veteran’s Day. There are many Veteran Day ceremonies held across the U.S.

Military Missions would like to say “THANK YOU” to each and every Veteran and tell them how much their service is appreciated! If you happen to see a Veteran today, please take a minute to say those two simple words. You have no idea how much it will mean to them!

Please take a few minutes to browse the photos at www.military-missions.org/hero-wall-photos. All of these Heroes have sacrificed so much to fight for and protect our freedoms. Military Missions is honored to be able to share them with you.

To keep up with our heroes, be sure to follow our blog and be sure to “LIKE”our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MilitaryMissionsInc

Adopt a Hero for the Holidays!

aah-christmas-tnailSEND A CHRISTMAS CARE PACKAGE

Think about the upcoming holiday season… What things come to mind?  Spending time with family and friends… enjoying the home cooked meals… or maybe just drinking a cup of hot chocolate beside the fireplace.

Now think for a moment about the men and women that are deployed during the holidays. Instead of home cooked meals, they will be eating MREs… instead of looking forward to a 3 day holiday weekend, they will be working hard every day to protect us and our freedoms… but most of all, they won’t get to enjoy spending time with their loved ones.

Care packages bring a little touch of home to our deployed troops. However, many who are deployed have no one sending them packages, or even letters. Our goal for Operation SEND Christmas is to send more care packages than ever before! The media tries to ignore the fact that thousands of troops are still deployed, but we KNOW the truth! We still have hundreds of names on our list that have requested care packages… and we want to send a package to each and every one of them!

Through our Adopt A Hero program, you have the opportunity to send a touch of home to a deployed hero. You can choose to shop for their items yourself, or simply donate and we will handle it all for you. YOU can make a difference in the life of an American hero!
