Project Lifting Spirits, Inc. works to provide gifts and morale boosting events to our local wounded troops and goody boxes to our deployed wounded troops on a regular basis throughout the year. Currently, we provide items to Fort Gordon Army Base, the Veteran's Administration Hospital, and the Fisher House on Fort Gordon in the Augusta, Georgia area.
Warriors Journey Home’s mission is to provide spiritual healing and soul repair for veterans, families and the community. They will be working to have a weekly location to hold their events and funds raised will assist them with this endeavor.
