A campaign to send supplies to U.S. troops going to Europe in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is gaining support as veterans are raising money and awareness for the cause. According to Herald-Mail Media, JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, a refuse removal company that employs veterans and offers franchises to those who want to start their own businesses, has joined the RED (Remember Everyone Deployed) Campaign to raise money for the U.S. troops heading to Europe. With the goal of raising $10,000, JDog is traveling around to different locations to rally support for our military.
JDog is raising the money for the nonprofit Soldiers’ Angels which is getting the supplies to U.S. troops. With thousands of U.S. military members called to Europe to assist our allies, Soldiers’ Angels is asking for donations of care package items including hygiene products and snacks, as well as monetary donations to help cover the cost of shipping the care packages and other items to troops overseas. Asking Americans to ensure that every service member is remembered, Soldier’s Angels is providing a way for our service members to be supported.
With the mission, “may no soldier go unloved,” Soldier’s Angels has a global network of volunteers working in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and 31 countries around the world who remain committed to providing “aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and their families.” In 2021 alone, they have helped more than 982,000 service members, veterans and their families, and that number continues to grow.
Driving around a BMW detailed with the RED Campaign theme, a JDog representative is spreading awareness for the cause to support our military overseas. As military appreciation month kicks off, this is one way Americans can show their gratitude and support for our servicemen and women. With Soldier’s Angels, those of us who are far from the conflict can make a difference by supporting our brave military members who have been called to duty.
