Charity of the Month: Helping Heros of America

Charity of the Month is a way Team Tizzel is helping to support some very worthy organizations. As part of this program, we will dedicate a post to a charity that we will sponsor through the month by donating Holly's training run money.

In October we supported several charities aiding British Virgin Island victims of Hurricane Irma. Funds included Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society, Virgin Unite, and Cow Wreck Beach Fund Page. We attempted to give money to the Perfect Pineapple Inn Fund Page but their crowd sourcing page was not working. We have seen some updates and businesses are on their way to welcoming guests for the winter season.

Novembers Charity:

Helping Heroes of America

We weren't really set on a November charity to support. Luckily we made a stop at the grocery store for a last minute item and ran into two men standing in front fundraising for Helping Heroes of America. They explained that they were collecting funds to assemble care packages that go to veterans in VA hospitals, active soldiers, or an entire unit. With a $116.75 donation we provided a package for a unit.

From their website:

Helping Heroes of America is dedicated to assisting our veterans and their families in the Indiana and Ohio area in a number of ways.We work to:

Provide hospitalized veterans with basic needs and wants for them and their families during time of treatment.

Provide direct funding and services to meet the needs of service members and their families during time of deployment.

Raise awareness and enlist the public aid for needs and wants of deployed, injured, or retired service members and veterans.

Check their website for more information.
