Phase I of this project is fundraising. Because this is for a specific group within our FRG (only single Soldiers), we needed to raise funds for this specific project. Our answer (taken from several other groups at Fort Hood who have hosted similar projects) was to have a "Sponsor a Single Soldier" fundraiser. Our unit Families were invited to sponsor a basket for $35.00 or donate items to be placed in the baskets. It was a HUGE success and we were able to get everything we needed for these heroes.
We are very excited and cannot wait to welcome these heroes home!
