One of the
missions of the SAME Pikes Peak Post (PPP) is to support the families of the
military who are deployed from Colorado. The PPP Board of Directors voted Sept
12 to support The
Home Front Cares (THFC), a 501(c)3 corporation which is a volunteer, non-profit
organization. THFC provides emergency financial assistance, goods and services
to familes of Active Duty, Activated Reserves and National Guard troops serving
in harm’s way from the Pikes Peak and Denver Region.
Programs include Energy Assistance Program, Wounded Troops Fund, and Phil Long’s Operation Home Support. An estimated $500,000 has been given to more than 1,700 beneficiaries since 2003. Examples of their mission include:
Thanks to Hal Alguire, Sustainability Planner at Fort Carson, and member of both PPP Post and DMP Post for sharing the needs of the THFC organization with the PPP board.
