Our dear friend, Ali Burks lost her brother in Iraq in 2007. In his honor they formed Unsung Hero Fund, which supports soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan through donations of care packages and supplies. Unsung Hero Fund also provides humanitarian supplies for citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan—clothing, soccer balls—anything that will help bridge the gap between their young people and us.
Last year we had the honor of participating, but this year, we committed to leading our own project and worked with our own veteran. Gordon, Jennifer and service manager Josh Hoffman led a team of 101 Mobility techs, staff, and friends, along with Ali Burks and her boyfriend March Mcruiz for the Footwashers Ministries.
