Good to hear from fellow Hoosiers.

Hello from Afghanistan.

Good to hear from fellow Hoosiers. We just received a package from the Elkhart County Indiana Chapter of the Hugs Project. What a pleasant surprise. Thank you so much for the headbands/hand warmers. We passed them out to everyone. The treats were also much appreciated. As a Hoosier myself, I know I can always count on fellow Hoosiers for their warmth, caring, and hospitality. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.


We couldn't do this without your support

Hello, I wanted to write and personally thank you all for the packages that we received from you through It is nice to know that we have so much support while we are over here away from our families and loved ones. I have been serving in the army for 20 years and it continues to amaze me when I see all the support and love shown from people all around the country. We couldn't do this without your support. It is difficult being over here but having small things to remind us of home are always a welcome sight, and it keeps us going for sure. I have attached a picture of our troop with some of the care packages that we received. Thank you again for all your help. Respectfully, Scott H.

"Words cannot express..."

Hello! I'm writing this email thanking the Elkhart County Indiana Chapter of The Hugs Project. Words cannot express how much gratitude I have for all of you. It means a lot that people are taking their own time to help us and others around the world. Thank you very much! Brandon P.

I like the knit hat ....


The care package was super sweet. Thank you for supporting us. I did get to share it with the office. We don't really get to work with children on this deployment. I like the knit hat and will wear it when it is cool out. Hope you guys are all well.
