H.E.R.O.E.S. Care

H.E.R.O.E.S. Care is an affiliation of program partners working together to provide support to military families in the communities where they live. H.E.R.O.E.S. Care combines the power of national organizations dedicated to providing emergency financial aid, employment opportunities, and mental health care services through a network of specially trained care givers before, during, and after deployment.

Every day we receive calls for help from military families in genuine need. The calls from military moms needing food so that their kids don't go hungry are some of the most heart wrenching of all.

One such call came from a young military spouse, who, through her tears, apologized for having to ask for help. She told us that for the last two days, all she had for her three kids to eat was a boxed macaroni and cheese dinner and a hotdog which she cut into thirds for them to share.

That's why H.E.R.O.E.S. Care established a network of food pantries open exclusively to military, members, Veterans and their families. Last year alone, more than 4,000 of these families received over 120 TONS of non-perishable foods through this life-saving program.

And now for the best part: Thanks to our relationship with area foodbanks, we are able to purchase food at an average of 10 cents per pound. A gift of only $10 provides 100 POUNDS of food for a family struggling to make ends meet as a result of the complex effects of service and both the seen and unseen wounds of war.

You have a chance to be a part of great goodness. They have given so much. Here's your chance to give a little something back. We promise to make your money work hard. Over 96 cents of every dollar we receive in donations is returned to military families in direct program services.

The need is great. The time is now. Thanks for your help...
