Goal for 2014:
All that HOME can send.
HOME - Help Our Military Endure was organized for charitable purposes to send care packages to United States servicemen and women serving in far off countries. This effort is solely supported by monetary and non-monetary donations collected from the general public throughout the year.
The schedule for HOME is getting busy and volunteers are needed to help and highly encouraged.
Here is the latest HOME schedule. Please contact any of our board members for information.

303 care packages were packed at the Christmas in July packing party on Saturday July 12th. The
boxes are filled with generous donations from the public, friends, individual groups, Churches,
Scouts, private companies, and local businesses. I could go on and on, but you know who you are.
You know what you do for our men and women in uniform. I am humbled from the outpouring of support
to our troops at each and every event HOME has.

Once again, our Boy Scouts from Troop 1513 came through with impressive numbers.
On Saturday June 21, they raised $1,140 dollars in cash donations and filled 5-6
large plastic bins with donated items from their collection drive at Kroger's on
El Dorado Blvd. The funds will help ship approximately 70 care packages to our men
and women serving overseas, and the items will be packed up during the "Christmas in
July" packing party coming up on Saturday July 12th.

The HOME office sprang to life as DHL rolled up with two trucks. Boy Scout troop 1513
and Girl Scout troops 7660, 21261, 21282, and 19352 along with HOME, DHL, and other
volunteers, helped load 12 pallets full of Girl Scout cookies onto the trucks. All
told, over 1,000 cases, that's approximately 330,000 cookies, made their way to U.S.
troops in Afghanistan courtesy of shipping services provided entirely free of charge
by DHL. The generous lot of cookies were a gift from San Jacinto/Bay Area Girl Scouts
council. A huge thanks goes out to all who made this happen.
