Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Please share with this with our NAVFOC members. Shop With A Hero is right around the corner.

Thanks to those who participated in the 2023 Veteran Week activities. I have heard nothing but good comments about the dinner, breakfast and parade. Some said the parade was the best in many years. That was made possible by you all participating in whatever manner that was. Thank you for having such great hearts for our Veteran Community.

Now can I turn to you for some help in a local event that serves the children in the Buckhorn and Hazel Green school clusters. My church focuses on these two school clusters and has been doing Shop with A Hero for 12 years as a way to lift up kids who need some hope. If you fit into the Hero categories listed, please consider coming out to assist.

We ask Heroes (Active Military, Retired Military, Teachers, First Responders, Medical/Dental People) to come to Hazel Green and shop with a kid from the Buckhorn and Hazel Green school clusters that are in need of HOPE. The counselors from the schools provide the kids, and aren't necessarily from the reduced lunch list. Some of these kids have both parents in jail and live with relatives, had a house fire recently and have nothing, etc. Each kid has a different reason for being at Walmart to shop with a hero. We give you a $100 gift card and a kid to go shopping with. You can go in with one kid, or stick around until all kids have gone through. We have sent letters out to 850 kids, and I think 650 have responded that they will be there. We run them from our church to Walmart in Hazel Green about every ten minutes, so there is a constant flow of kids from 0900- 1200 hrs. It is a very rewarding event. Come out and help on 9 December if you don't have anything going on before the Army/Navy game.
