Memorial Day volunteer and donation opportunities

Honor‚ remembrance‚ reflection. These are the true purposes of Memorial Day. If you are uncertain of how to honor our fallen heroes‚ consider volunteering with and/or donating to one of the following organizations:

  • TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors). Created by bereaved military families‚ TAPS provides counseling and support groups to those grieving the death of a military loved one.
  • Knights of Heroes. Through its outdoor adventure programs‚ Knights of Heroes offers adult mentorship‚ character development‚ and lasting friendships to children who have lost a parent in service to our country.
  • American Widow Project. Founded in 2007‚ the American Widow Project delivers peer counseling and educational programs to help widows rebuild their lives.
  • Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. Provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.

I hope you find this information to be helpful. Here’s to a safe and healthy holiday weekend.
