8/21/2014 - Thank You!
Thank you to our Socks for Soldiers supporters for your financial support, physical support and prayers for our troops in harms way. Over the past 10 years, we have sent “care packs” to more than 57,000 troops. You read that correctly, 57,000. None of those would have been possible without your support. Most of our troops are back on safe soil now and we aren’t receiving names and addresses of recipients.
New Focus: Veterans in the Texas Panhandle who are in our VA Hospital, the Ussery Roan Veterans Center, Another Chance House and those who just need a hand up, not a hand out. We have and are building “care packs” for many of them.
Looking Ahead: Bursey Sisters, Inc., the parent group of Socks for Soldiers will be dissolved as of January 1, 2015. The available funds will be given to other 501c3 groups that our working with our veterans. It’s been a great blessing for us over these 10 years to have these opportunities to help our former and active troops. Our final fund raiser, a plant sale, will be on Saturday, August 23. These funds will be used to support our hospitalized veterans.
Thank you again!
Carolyn and Doug Miller
