Our sincere thanks to the members of the Dubhgealach Motorcycle Club of Front Royal Virginia for their generous donation of $150 to the Able Forces Crisis Fund. 100% of all donations to the Crisis Fund go directly to support Military and Veterans and their families in financial crisis. All recipients are referred by a Veteran Advocate and financial support is paid directly to address the specific need. You guys are AWESOME!! and we hope to work together with you in the future. A big Army HOOAH! to all of you.
Able Forces was honored to be a part of the Quantico Warrior Games-Warrior and Family Transition Fair yesterday as the 2015 Warrior Games are opened at Quantico Marine Base. What an absolutely inspiring day to spend with these Warrior Athletes from all over the country as well as our Warrior veterans from Britain. God Bless these men and women who have given so much and continue to inspire so many
The staff at Able Forces is just humbled by the incredible support we received for our 2nd Annual Adopt A Warrior Family For Christmas program. This year we were able to expand our support to assist Warrior and Vetean families in 17 states and the District of Columbia.
Last year we were able to "adopt"4 families. This year, 10 families were adopted and provided gifts for each child off their "wish list", a tree, and the entire Christmas meal for up to 8. In addition, additional gift cards were provided for the parent(s). Along with our "adoption" of families, financial contributions from our donors provided another 35 families with gift cards, with the smallest demonination of gift card being $150.00. Finally, another 388 families received toys for thier children.
Our full report is posted and we will look forward to expanding the program next year. Click HERE for the report.
A HUGE thank you to all who contributed, to our Warrior Advocates who identified our families, to our Corporate sponsors Insperity, SMS, Miracle Valley Vineyard, Operation Homefront, Orbital, ESOP Services, BB&T, Operation Care, the British Embassy, and to my staff and volunteers that made this all happen. It was once again an example of the Christmas Spirit! Thank you all. May God continue to Bless all of you.
