Civilians Helping Military Families


I am so excited to a part of this project “Civilians Helping Military Families“.

I am working with several other women business owners who have adopted TWO military families.  Each family has provided a wish list of items that we are gathering to help bring a smile to their face and to make their life just a little bit easier.  It is a great way to support our Military and their families who sacrifice so much for us every day.
