BOOTS FOR TROOPS CARE PACKAGE PROGRAM
This is our primary program at Boots For Troops. Once selected to receive a BFT care package, our team personally corresponds with the service members or family/friends of service members who request a package. We send over a form via e-mail that ask a series of questions such as what does the service member need where they are deployed? What is their favorite snacks? What is their favorite sports team, and more. Lastly, each package comes with a new pair of personal boots selected by the package recipient. This program is designed to generate the biggest morale boost possible.
Program Founder Jimmy Rogers has spent time deployed himself, and knows first hand the difference a care package can make. When he was deployed he received mass produced packages from other organizations, and although he was grateful to receive his package he wanted to create a program that was more personal and touched the hearts and minds of our service members. That’s exactly what our care package program does.
If you would like to request a package for a service member you know that is deployed and in need of one, please click on the Request a Package button.
WARRIOR MORALE PROJECT
Warrior Morale Project is a special holiday season project, initiated to help selected individual service members offset the cost to travel home for the holidays. The holidays are an especially meaningful and emotional time for our military men and women who want nothing more than to be able to spend a few days at home with the ones they love.Unfortunately for some, the expense of getting home isn’t always manageable, and instead of being in the presence of family, and enjoying the smell of turkey and homemade cookies baking, some have to settle for phone conversations and Skype meetings.
We want to take it a step farther and help those we can, get home for Christmas. Donations to this project will go towards purchasing air fare, gas vouches and financially assisting service members with travel home to spend Christmas with their families, and also help assist them in getting back to their home base safely after Christmas break.
Honor Our Heroes
The Honor Our Heroes program at Boots For Troops covers a broad spectrum of services. This program offers financial assistance, disaster relief assistance, random acts of kindness, for United States veterans. Each case is reviewed on a case by case basis. Additionally in 2020, Boots For Troops in partnership with The Light Up To Live Foundation and The Patriotic Service Dog Foundation, Boots For Troops is raising money to fund the complete training and raising of a service dog that will be awarded to a PTSD veteran in need. Lastly, this program funds the recognition and honoring of over 25 veterans a year at Boots For Troops major fundraising events.
