The Heart Behind ADS, Inc.
One of the most rewarding things we do at Active Valor is getting the opportunity to work side by side with other veterans continuously trying to serve their community. We’ve had the extreme pleasure of sharing stories, building new friendships and passing along knowledge we have gained from our military experience. It is truly a blessing.
As much as we love to strengthen our veteran community, our work doesn’t stop there. As a veteran owned organization, we will always remember where we came from and the honor that came alongside serving our country. In remembering those things, we also remember the sting of being away from loved ones, deploying during birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases, and precious first moments. In everything we do, we want to make sure we honor those who still wear the uniform and still put themselves in harms way to keep us all safe at home. One company decided to go above and beyond for these men and women. We are proud to announce that ADS Inc. has joined our Remember Everyone Deployed initiative, and has personally adopted two platoons deployed overseas. ADS, Inc.’s personal interest and generosity means that over fifty deployed men and women will be receiving personalized care packages complete with hand written notes, items, requested hygiene kits, entertainment, and items from home.
Through our care package program, we give people and companies the chance to show their love and appreciation for our troops overseas in tangible support. ADS Inc. reached out to us wanting to show their personal support to those still deployed by sponsoring not one, but TWO Company Care Packages, totaling over 60 personalized care packages. Their incredibly generous donation came with more than just sending boxes overseas.
With our care package program, we personally take the time to reach out to these men and women overseas and find out the important items that they don’t have access to, comforts they miss from home, and the little things that give them joy in such an unfamiliar part of the world. This not only impacts the people receiving them, but the veterans who get to assemble them. When we put these care packages together, we bring groups of veterans together to personally pack the boxes which gives them the opportunity to connect with one another, strengthen bonds and to also give their thanks to their brothers and sisters still in the fight. As an added bit of support, we also include personal letters of gratitude and encouragement.
With our last packing party, ADS Inc. not only provided us with the ability to send love overseas, but also provided us with the chance to share life with some honorable men and women. ADS Inc’s donation led to us flooding the post office with dozens and dozens of packages, which impacted the lives of 28 United States Marines in Afghanistan and 25 United States Soldiers in Iraq. It was our biggest shipment we have been able to send to date. We give a huge thank you to ADS Inc, and we know that their contribution is greatly appreciated by the brave men and women who receive them. It has been an honor to work with you and we hope to get the opportunity to do so again in the future. It is because of companies like yours that we get to say thank you to those fighting for our freedom.
