Every day, our troops put their lives on the line to serve and protect our great country. These men and women fight for our freedom yet ask for nothing in return. There are however, ways that we can show support, love and gratitude to our troops overseas.
In this all new episode of Family Comes First, premiering on Monday, November 23 at 1:30 pm, we meet Emily Gordon Spencer, Founder of the Heartillery Group. Emily joins us to share the heartwarming mission of her organization. Emily became actively involved in the military community after her husband was deployed to Afghanistan just 3 months after their wedding in 2012. Her mission is to connect the community to our soldiers and extend the same love & appreciation to not only her husband and his unit, but to as many soldiers as possible for their work, sacrifice and courage.
Heartillery Group collects cards and items for care packages from all over the world to show love and gratitude to soldiers. These cards and care packages help to boost the soldiers’ spirits when they are missing home.
Also joining us this week is Susan Russo, Executive Director of the Theresa Academy of Performing Arts (TAPA). Susan aids Emily in her mission by having students at TAPA design greeting cards. These cards are then used by people who request greeting cards to fill out for the soldiers.
