At K9s For Warriors, we are in the business of supporting our military and veterans each day of the year. Warriors from every branch of the service enter into our program, and showing them gratitude is always a priority. Because military appreciation month is in May, we would like to give you some ideas on how you can appreciate our heroes.
Research local veteran service or military support organizations in your city. If you live near Jacksonville, FL, consider giving us a hand. We are always on the lookout for great volunteers. There are so many worthy charities that focus solely on the many issues faced by military personnel, veterans, and their families. You may choose to visit a VA nursing home to play a game of chess with a Vietnam veteran; or perhaps you would like to spend time assisting a military family experiencing a deployment.
Invite your family, friends, or coworkers to assist you with putting together a care package for a deployed service member. These packages are easy to make and can really brighten up the recipient’s life. Find a reputable organization that specializes in care packages to streamline the process.
If you do not have the time to volunteer or to put together a package, consider making a Military Appreciation donation to K9s For Warriors or another worthy military nonprofit. Donations of any size can go a long way in supporting a charity that aims to improve the lives of our military and veterans.
We are very fortunate to have a strong military that is always there to answer the call of duty. Without their bravery and commitment, our country would not likely be the wonderful place we have become accustomed to.
