Veterans’ Day is right around the corner, and we have a lot of activity with Mission Soldier Adoption, a program of On Purpose Journey Inc.
I was recently asked what we’re going to do since the Troops are coming home…we have MANY Troops overseas in need of support and we greatly appreciate your help in being able to show our heroes that though they are not home, they are not forgotten.
November 1st is the LAST DAY to order Seroogy Chocolate–all profits will be used to ship care packages overseas.
November 1st is also the day of the 3rd Annual Candy Collection in Grafton, WI. Dr. Kurt Kwiatkowski is hosting the candy collection for the Troops again this year so Mission Soldier Adoption will be sending boxes of Halloween Candy overseas…because Troops like sugar too 🙂 Along with candy, Mission Soldier Adoption is also accepting items for care packages and financial assistance for shipping care packages. At this event, JASON MOON, a Veteran/songwriter/singer, will perform from 4-5:30pm. Jason will have cd’s for sale at the event. If you’re in town, you should come…to watch Jason, and to watch as a few hundred pounds of candy are brought in by families in the surrounding communities for the Troops.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, Veolia Environmental Services is packing 200 care packages to ship to our Troops overseas on November 11th! Veolia has been purchasing and collecting items nationwide as a tribute and thank you to our service men and women for Veterans Day.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Share what we do with others-individuals and companies. We are hearing that many people would like to donate–they just don’t know who sends care packages to our Troops overseas. We do 🙂 We are hearing from companies that want to collect items for Troops for the holidays but they don’t know how to get the items overseas…we do!
Financially, we’re in need of shipping funds. Every dollar helps get a box in the hands of a soldier, sailor, marine, airman, coast guardsman, or national guardsman or woman who doesn’t receive support from home.
HELPING HEARTS THIS PAST MONTH: Sandy L, Starbucks on Capitol Drive in Wauwatosa, Ellen’s Richfield Barber Shop, Lynn S, Richard H, Susie K, Mark C, Juliana S, and Mike B.

Thank you Mollie that was incredibly sweet of you to send me a care package. I can tell that you are clearly a professional at making care packages, it seemed like you had everything in that box. To make the day of someone who is a stranger is a very caring thing that you do. I hope you get as much joy in life as you give. Thank you again, Justin
