Our friends at Mills Heating & Air blessed our Fisher House in a big way this past month. Jackson White, and his sons Chris and Marty phoned to say they would be donating……$50,000 to our local mission to bless military and veteran families. WOWZA…….If you need heating and air, give them your business. They say thank you for service and sacrifice in a very tangible way. Making sure there is comfort at our home on Eglin AFB during a medical event, warm and ready for them. Check out the images here.
Local DefenseWerx upgrades from Bronze to Silver for this year’s 2020 #carecontinues campaign. We were hosted for a tour and learned more about their mission to support the Department of Defense.
What are they?

On this Thankful Thursday, we are practicing an attitude of gratitude for the many partners in the community who love our military like we do. Crane Aerospace and Electronics joined us last year at the Helping Heroes Gala, and after hearing our featured speaker Bobby Dove, they signed up BIGGER for 2020. They presented their BIG love offering this week. We love our Crane family who make the donation from their Crane Family Fund. Learn more about Bobby here.
This group from Cox Communications is taking PACK the pantry to an all new level. Not only did they shop under a timeline and budget as part of their team building visit, they stacked their goodies into our pantry, organizing and streamlining, then packed themselves in for a famous COX selfie. We love them for blessing our house guests! ❤️
