NORTHBROOK, Ill. (Jan. 2, 2018) – OpticsPlanet employees made the holidays a little brighter for Chicago-based military families in need by participating in the Hope For The Warriors Holiday Giving Initiative.
OpticsPlanet employees collected and donated brand-new warm weather clothing for children and adults along with books, toy cars, developmental toys, sports equipment and more.
The Hope For The Warriors Holiday Giving Initiative is open to post-9/11 wounded or Gold Star military families that are struggling financially during the holidays. The nonprofit accepts referrals of service members and/or veterans that would benefit from the Holiday Giving Initiative and then matches each military families’ wish list with Hope For The Warriors’ donors.
Celebrating 11 years of service, Hope For The Warriors assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming including transition services, clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and community development and engagement.
