HUG - Heroes Under God

Updated on March 31, 2013

STOCKINGS FOR SOLDIERS

I became aware of this organization this morning while watching "Behind The Scenes" on TBN. Paul Crouch Jr. was interviewing his daughter Brittany, who is one of the founder's of this wonderful outreach. Here is a brief description of what they do: This time of year is especially difficult for our soldiers who are on duty abroad for long stretches of time. They miss their families, and familiar surroundings. The Holidays, I would think, would be the hardest. HUG has a list of items to send to these soldiers, and they also have a family sponsorship program where you or I can send a monthly amount to help families of soldiers that are struggling to make ends meet. I personally think it is a great outreach to be involved with and this lens is here simply to spread the word. John Stewart

This video of mine has been on YouTube for several years and has had thousands of visits. I made it in appreciation to the sacrifices made during military duty.

FROM THEIR WEBSITE:

"Make Christmas more joyful this year by adopting a military family through Heroes Under God's Adopt-a-Family project. Join HUG as we spread Christmas cheer to our local military families. Sign up today and receive information on a family from Camp Pendleton, California. Help us show these families our love and appreciation for the sacrifice they make all year round.

The Adopt-a-Family program matches military families from, Camp Pendleton Marine Base, with individuals, families, or group sponsors to provide gifts for military families. When a match is made the family information and wish list are sent to the sponsor. The families names along with the children's ages are given along with a wish list. This can include toys, clothing, household items or gift cards. Sponsors come in many shapes and sizes. They can be individuals, families, small businesses, large corporations, or churches. In many of the larger corporation or churches, different departments or groups within the church often each adopt a family.

Heroes Under God would like to thank all of our Adopt-a-Family sponsors for their kind hearts and generosity. We appreciate everything you do to help us show thanks to our military personnel and their families.

If this program is something you are interested in participating in please e-mail us at: HeroesUnderGod@gmail.com with "Adopt a Family" in the subject line. This would be a great opportunity to get your family, group of friends or coworkers together to do in support of our bravest!"

      This is great! My husband a Vietnam Veteran is a member of many Vet. Organizations here in town and very involved in many projects. Holidays is a real bad time for the troops. I'm working on a Military painting that I donate prints from every year for raffles at our VVA Xmas party.

      Being in the military myself, and being away from home during the holidays was hard. Receiving packages from people who did not know us, but cared for us. Was a welcomed site. It showed us that people do care for the military personal who are fighting for our freedom. Thank you for sharing the information on this lens.
