Mercy for Me Help Our Heroes Project Report

We are so pleased to share this project report with you. We have been able to provide hardship funds to deserving military families due to the Help Our Heroes campaign. To date, we have disbursed a total of three grants to three deserving families valued at $5,600. These military families are located in Maryland, Missouri and California. We are processing new applications regularly and will continue to locate and disburse grants to military families in need.

I want to share with you a warm testimonial from Alex. Alex has suffered due to multiple injuries including head injuries during his deployment and was the recipient of The Bronze Star with Valor and The Purple Heart. Now disabled and raising his two young boys on his own, Alex has been struggling to pay his rent and has medical bills piling up while he patiently awaits his VA benefits. Mercy for Me was able to give Alex $2,500 to help him make ends meet until he receives his benefits.

"I wanted to extend my warmest appreciation for the grant that you worked so hard to get for us... The attached photo is of my sons Hayden, 12, Clayton 11 and myself. My sons and my family have sacrificed and helped get through these tough times.

Once again thank you so very much to you and your organization!"
