Turning dreams into realities is probably one of the most exhilaratingly motivators you can have. When your goal is to benefit and include the veteran community in this mission, the drive is even greater.
Launch day, October 15th, you all showed your incredible support and we were immediately able to send a platoon some care packages for Thanksgiving/Christmas! Putting these boxes together was a dream we have had as a company for quite some time, but inviting veterans to put these packages together for these Active Duty soldiers was incredible. Knowing first hand how it feels to have mail shipped overseas, especially for you, made it that much more fun to put these packages together. Brimming with hygiene items and snacks, we sent these boxes out the next day to an eager platoon in the Middle East.
We also included a local elementary school in this process—collecting hundreds of hand written thank you notes and INCREDIBLE drawings from 6 and 7 year olds. You can imagine how excited they were to hear their drawings were going halfway across the world.
We can’t wait to share this journey with you all.
Active Valor launched to the public in October, 2016. We look forward to everything 2017 will have in store for the veterans of San Diego and beyond!
