Fill the Footlocker

Fill the Footlocker consists of two programs.

  • The first program supports active-duty service members and military working dogs serving in combat zones.
  • The second program supports our ever rising number of homeless veterans.

 

Working within the community, MMIA collects items for both programs. Once items are collected, a community pack-n-ship event is held to prepare items for shipment overseas. Items collected for homeless veterans are distributed at the numerous homeless veteran stand-downs held within the state. Financial donations are greatly appreciated to help offset the cost of shipping.
