Remembering those who protect us everyday

Stars Stripes and Heroes is a 501(c3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing cards, letters, emails and care packages and help to our first responders, our troops and our veterans.

Stars Stripes and Heroes remembers and supports our first responders such as our Police, EMS, Firefighters as well as our military Heroes that are both deployed and stateside.  To show our support and gratitude we will continue to send them cards, letters, care packages and assistance -  Remembering Those Who Protect US Everyday’

For the Police, we show our appreciation by letting them enjoy their breakfast or lunch 'on us' by paying it forward.

For our Fireman / EMT's, we have had several fundraisers for a local firestation to help build a 9/11 memorial with the artifacts that they have in their possession. These artifacts are from the plane crash in Pennsylvania, a 'scorched' brick from the Pentagon and a section of structural beam from Twin Tower #2. Click on the 9/11 Memorial to see the memorial.

Also -

As it is not uncommon to see fire fighters in the grocery store, we often will purchase a gift card from the courtesy counter, present it to them and thank them for their service. 

For our deployed heroes, we continue to send cards, letters and care packages on a regular basis. Some of the responses that we have received are: "They are like kids in a candy store when they get their packages" and "We feasted like kings".

 For our veterans, we have provided gift cards, purchased groceries, helped with taxes, medical bills and car repairs just to mention a few.
