We are thrilled to announce our 9/9/17 STAND Care Package & Appreciation Event!
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we lost a significant amount of funding for our nonprofit. However, we are honored and proud to be receiving donations from amazing sponsors and donors to help us fill and ship care packages overseas to our troops, as we have a firefighter/Marine/Seabees platoon currently deployed. We are grateful for the incredible support so we can send Morale Builder Care Packages to our deployed platoon, every month–this being the launch of our first set of packages for this crew–until they return home. If you know of a company or individual willing to support On Purpose Journey financially, so we can support this crew every month, please let us know.

Time: 2PM (Opening ceremony of a Welcome, Posting of the Colors, Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem by Bugler SSG Gervais, Gold Star Mom’s Message, Prayer by Chaplain Russ Knoth, 16 Seconds of Silence, TAPS by Bugler SSG Gervais, Recover Colors–followed by care packages and honoring 700+ heroes)
