Cell Phones for Soldiers, Great Choice Chiropractic collection drive

As a United States veteran, Dr. Greg Hauser knows the importance and the joy of being able to call home when deployed. More than 150,000 troops are serving overseas and are away from their families. Cell Phones for Soldiers and Great Choice Chiropractic are calling on all Americans to support these brave men and women by donating unused cell phones. The cell phones are recycled for cash, and the proceeds are used to buy prepaid calling cards for soldiers serving in the Middle East. Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to collect more than 50,000 cell phones this year to help keep troops connected with their families.

Phones may be donated at Great Choice Chiropractic, 15810 S. 45th St., Suite 160. Phones do not have to be in working order, and the drive is ongoing.

Groups help military families

Over the last five years, 1.6 million military service members have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. CAMP HOPE is a new fundraising campaign by Easter Seals and Epsilon Sigma Alpha International to provide camping opportunities for children of military families. A $600 contribution to CAMP HOPE will provide a week-long camping experience for these kids, allowing them to be kids again and also the opportunity to share their experiences with children of other service members. Any and all donations will provide services to support families learning to live with a service member facing newly acquired disabilities.

More information and CAMP HOPE support forms are available at Help say a much deserved “Thank You” to some of our youngest heroes.

TShirts 4 Soldiers helps people connect

The Home Sweet Home Campaign’s new program, TShirts 4 Soldiers, is helping people connect with their deployed loved ones. This unique and fun way to send a piece of your heart and home to a service member you love is making a big splash in the military world. Spouses, children, mothers and more are designing one-of-a-kind T-shirts and having them shipped directly to their loved one. In turn, service members are sending T-shirts they have designed back home to their family and friends.

For every T-shirt sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to USA Cares Warrior Treatment Today Program, which seeks to remove the financial barrier that prohibits veterans diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries from receiving the treatment they need.
