Happy Thankgiving! This week Empire Industries LLC is donating items we collected as well as a check for our charity of choice, Camp Hope. If you are looking for a way to support a good cause during this week of thank, Camp Hope could really use your help. Check their site (link below) for ways you can help through items or monetary donations.
The facility opened in 2012 and is located in a quiet and safe setting in Houston, Texas whereby veterans and their immediate family members can find healing, help and hope while benefiting from an intensive peer support and mentoring program for Post Traumatic Stress. In addition to temporary housing, Camp Hope offers a 90+ day PTSD recovery program in which residents: attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans; conduct individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; participate in off-site small group interaction activities (fishing, hiking, local activities and events); and get involved with local churches, businesses and volunteer organizations to assist in their personal healing and educating the community on the invisible wounds of war.
