 First and most important:

If you have a family member or friend deployed to the Middle East or in some other area of the world where they are in harm's way just let us know. We will do the rest. 

 About Us:

The Hugs Project Of Western Kentucky Inc is an organization that is 100% volunteer. While we are a chapter of The Hugs Project in Oklahoma, we are completely independent of ALL other organizations. Donations to them or any other organization will not come to us. The only way to donate to us is to donate directly to us. 

Our mission is to show love and support to our troops by providing care package items to those serving in harms way. There are NO paid employees, travel expenses or entertainment expenses and nearly all donations are used to defer the cost of materials, care package items and shipping of care packages. We do have ink and paper for printer, utilities and other minor expenses but no one makes a profit on working with us. The cooling wraps (Hugs) and boot fresheners (smellies) are all made by hand by volunteers. All contributions are tax deductible we are a 501 (c) (3) organization. If you wish to volunteer to help us with the project, please contact us. We need people to sew simple items, help with fund raising activities, collecting items to send and help with the packing and shipping of care packages.

We have volunteers mostly from Kentucky and southern Illinois area.

If you know of someone serving in the Middle East, contact us and let us know. We'd love to start sending them care packages. They DO NOT have to live in the western KY or southern Illinois area as we send to men/women from all over the country. We love all our military.

Be sure to visit our guest book and leave a comment, especially if you have been a receipient of one of our packages.
