Support Honor Our Troops
Honor Our Troops is a non-profit organization founded on the realization that too many of our troops don’t receive the love and support that they deserve. With the help of sponsors, they work tirelessly to meet that need, and ensure that the men and women serving in the U.S. military know that their sacrifice is not going unnoticed.
What drives H.O.T. is the understanding that there are U.S. soldiers all around the world that aren’t receiving any cards, letters, or care packages from home. They feel that it is their responsibility to bring attention to this and do what we can to make sure this need is met.
They send H.O.T. Care Packages to troops around the world, year-round. Care Packages consist of things like popular snacks, groceries, candy, reading material, socks, and hygiene products, and is topped with an encouraging letter and a photo from the sender.
Big Zak & Beth are proud supporters of Honor Our Troops. Learn more about what they do and how you can help by sponsoring a Car Package, holding a fundraising event or by making a donation HERE.
