FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (Dec. 14, 2023) –Together with Food Lion, Frito Lay, Forward, Armed Services YMCA, and Gary Sinise Foundation, Hope For The Warriors are distributing 4,000 food boxes to Fort Campbell military families today.
Founded in 2006, Hope For The Warriors assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming focused on providing financial, career and educational stability; physical and emotional strength; and social support that builds community.
Representatives for the partnering organizations are distributing non-perishable food items, grocery gift cards, as well as other items such as books and stuffed teddy bears.
Also on hand to assist are former MLB player and World Series Champion Doug Flynn and Bravo reality star, Craig Conover.
“We’re honored to be back in the Fort Campbell community for a third year in a row,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder, president/CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “The holidays can be hard for a lot of military families as loved ones are deployed and/or families are living far away from their hometowns. Then to add the tragedy of the tornadoes that recently hit the area turning life upside down for so many. We hope this small gift from HOPE and our partners brings a smile to these families as we remind them how much we appreciate their service not just around the holidays, but all year-round.”
