Support our Troops through OPSEND EASTER

OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER is here!

OPERATION S.E.N.D EASTER is one of the many projects that Military Missions, Inc undertakes each year in an effort to Send Encouragement to our Nation’s Deployed.  Military Missions Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting our military, our veterans, and their families on a year round basis.

“If someone is serving in the military on our behalf, then we are going to be sure to offer support and encouragement to them no matter what time of the year it happens to be,” says Military Missions Inc founder, Beth Pennington.  “As we celebrate Easter with our families, our troops will not have the opportunity to be with their loved ones.  Instead they will be standing watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties.  Each one is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and an American.  Let’s join together and send our troops some encouragement as well as our thanks.”

There are a number of ways in which people can get involved in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER.  Military Missions, Inc. will be accepting donations in the form of care package items, personal cards and letters written to the troops, and monetary donations to cover the postage needed to mail packages overseas.

Schools, churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals from all over the USA participate in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER.  To find out how you can get involved in this endeavor, visit http://www.military-missions.org.

You may contact the organization via email at info@military-missions.org, or by calling 859-221-9477.  Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the office located in the Millpond Shopping Center at 3650 Boston Road, Suite 146, Lexington, Kentucky 40514.

The donation drive will run through March 16, 2012.  Packing assemblies will take place during the week of March 12-16. 2012, allowing time for the packages to reach the deployed troops for Easter.  If you are interested in attending the care package assembly on Wednesday, March 14, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, please click here to register.

If you know of someone who will be deployed during the Easter holiday this year, they can be added to the care package mailing list at www.military-missions.org/add-a-hero/

About Beth

I have what I consider to be the best job on the planet. I have the privilege of supporting and encouraging the brave men and women who were the uniform of the US military. I did not set out to start a nonprofit organization, I simply did what came naturally when my son joined the US Marine Corps in 2004. I followed my mother’s heart.

As the mother of three boys, I spent countless hours as home school mom, room mother, team mother, and parent volunteer. One day I found myself to be the adopted platoon mom to a unit of Marines. What started out as a mother sending care packages to her son has turned into a fast-growing nonprofit that keeps me busy day and night, and I love every minute of it!

When I mailed the first care package several years ago, I had no idea that I would have an opportunity to send out thousands of care packages each year and become an advocate for Wounded Warriors and Veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. When I became the mother of a disabled veteran suffering with TBI and PTSD, and saw, firsthand, the struggles and the needs, I knew it was my obligation to support those who have been willing to stand in the gap for my freedom. It’s the least I can do to say thanks.

I work with various programs in our community, as well as other advocates and organizations to meet the needs of our military and veteran population in Central Kentucky. I also have the privilege of serving on the board at Voice of Warriors and enjoy hosting VOW Talk Radio’s weekly program on Monday nights.
