“Thanks to everyone involved who made this fabulous event happen. I don’t even know where to begin; my husband and I are both in the military, and my husband is currently deployed. Neither my husband nor I know many people here because we just received a Permanent Change of Station less than a year ago. All the gifts that we received lifted a huge financial and mental burden off [our] family.” – Military Baby Shower Attendee
The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania will continue to support our men and women serving in the military, both at home and abroad, as well as their families. The name for this program has simply changed back to Help for Our Heroes, because the term “heroes” truly describes those who sacrifice so much so we can enjoy the freedoms we too often take for granted.
To date, we have provided more than $1 million toward calling cards; military baby showers; holiday events for families at military bases; programming for children with special needs; telemedicine; amusement park family outings; adaptive bicycles for veterans with injuries; support of veterans’ courts; improvements to veterans’ homes and renovations needed by families of those who are serving overseas.
