Forgotten Soldiers Outreach
3550 23rd Ave S # 7, Lake Worth, FL 33461
Phone: (561) 369-2933
The purpose of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is to send care packages and letters of encouragement to our deployed soldiers. Unfortunately, many military personnel who are fighting for our freedom go through many great struggles and get emotionally depressed. Being away from family, friends and loved ones can take its toll on a soldier, especially when the communication can be difficult and/or lessened during high war times. Even though the media coverage of the soldiers in Iraq is no longer at the intensity as it was earlier this year, we need not forget that our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters are still fighting in ALL world theaters! We need to let them know “they are not forgotten”.
