Where No Hero is Forgotten







We must begin preparing and sending care now to be on time for the holidays including Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwaanza … and New Years !

Its not too early as the needs are great and what we need most is help for postage which anyone can do below in thanks!


Add your own personal message which we make extra special and include in your care packages you sponsor . It’s personal here at Homefront Hugs as we are a US Air Force Family ourselves and volunteer our time which is our donation . 




One care package costs $18 to ship via USPS. Can  you sponsor one? We have 145 to get out by beginning of December …Could you possibly make a monthly pledge ?

Sponsoring 3 = $54 , to ship 6 = $108, etc. and please know any help matters with your personal message as short or as long as you wish for the holidays .  Just click on any yellow button on this page . It’s safe & secure .


Since Homefront Hugs began after 9/11/01 , we have sent 21,600+ care packages to specific vetted military personnel needing support and 10,000+ from Homefront Hugs volunteers who adopt their own heroes directly . We support ALL who serve and need us, politics aside .

Bottom line , your support makes a real  difference. You can add a short or long message we will gratefully include and handwrite on a card .

Homefront Hugs began 1 month after 9/11 and on the birthday of our founder’s husband and Air Force pilot, her best friend and hero, Steve Schmidt of gorgeous Charlevoix, Michigan . If you have never been to the dunes of Charlevoix and watched a sunset with a loved one, never enjoyed their Cherry 🍒 Festival , the International Venetian Festival, Apple Fest, etc.. Charlevoix is a charming gem for anyone wanting an escape and place to ” savor the moments ” as Steve always reminded his wife to do and she still does escaping to Charlevoix when she can with her son. Make sure to put this memorable welcoming town on your bucket list and be prepared to soak in the exquisite sunsets .



They met at University of Michigan –  as college sweethearts. Then Steve joined the Air Force . Though their marriage did not last due to tragedy, Alessandra began Homefront Hugs with her son afteto help support troops, military families and veterans better than how her own marriage was supported years ago when a tragic loss occurred while deployed overseas in Europe and just before Desert Storm broke out.

We never forget the sacrifices at Homefront Hugs. Your generosity here makes a real direct difference as 100% is used for our troops and wounded to receive care . Thank you for helping ship care today and not just scrolling by.

KEY REASONS troops might not have support while deployed anywhere:

📌 Divorce or Separation from Partner/Spouse
📌 Financial issues so family cannot afford to send more than letters or cards
📌 Time constraints for spouse or partner as they have to work 2 jobs now to make ends meet or just longer hours to keep family business going
📌 Children – Their partner or spouse is literally a single parent now
📌 Child or Spouse is ill and requires all the attention and care stateside
📌 Family disapproves of military service

📌Natural Disaster affecting ability for family to send support to loved ones  ( re: wildfires ,floods, Maria,Harvey,Irma)

📌 First Deployment without any family Support due to disapproval of military service
📌 Pride or Depression so hero asks family or loved ones not to worry about him or her while deployed

You make a real difference at Homefront Hugs and support these heroes . Adopt or help send care packages today. We need the kind of support our World War II veterans had from the Homefront over 75 years ago.

Homefront Hugs are much more than simple hugs . They are real support for those who offer sacrifices and sometimes their own lives for our country and our freedoms . Our heroes come from all religions, politics and walks of life – volunteering for a country they love . 




Homefront Hugs support helps to prevent some of the feelings that makes a service member more vulnerable to PTSD , depression and even suicide.

Fact : We are losing too many to suicide every single day both active duty and veterans . Support is critical before,during and after deployments . That is why we are here .

What is needed most critically now? 

✅ Funds for postage to mail care .This is the most secure website to donate funds with any means . We have not had any problems in 16 years . 

✅Volunteers to adopt troops and military families from far. 

✅Web designer team and app developers to donate time to tweak website, forms and develop an app to serve our thousands of troops and vets best .  

✅Social Media help to share messages and needs , resources for troops,vets and families especially on Twitter , Reddit and Facebook.

✅College students and teens to help make short 1 minute videos to help with suicide prevention , write letters, volunteer at local VA hospitals or with homeless, create their own projects, and decorate pillowcases for our hospitalized vets and deployed. 

✅ Homefront Hugs Kids, Teen,College and Seniors’ Clubs across the country .

🔹 100% of your donation is used for postage to mail specific needs to our wounded , sick , cancer patients and homeless sick veterans as well as our brave deployed . We cover the cost of filling the care packages ourselves and with actual supplies sometimes donated . These critical care packages to our hospitalized vets include specific requests from hospital staff here and overseas in war zones. 

Our support at Homefront Hugs USA is unconditional to ensure no hero is forgotten. Freedom Endures (TM). Support Matters .


How do we receive names of troops in need ?

Great question. We have commands and chaplains signing up troops who have no support for Homefront Hero Hugs and hospitals we have worked with for years with our mission Operation Healing Angel . We also have families and troops who sign up heroes in need  or themselves many who sign up every deployment knowing us from experience .
