Camp Hometown Heroes is a national, free, week-long overnight summer camp for children and siblings between the ages of seven to seventeen of fallen U.S. service members. During their visit to camp, children have the opportunity to openly discuss their feelings and experiences, as well as enjoy typical summer camp activities such as swimming, dance, arts and crafts, archery, drama, canoeing, fishing, climbing and more. Most importantly, children are given the opportunity to begin or continue the healing process.

Veterans Outreach Center is an organization that offers free services and programs for veterans and their families.  These programs can range from financial services, career training, and counseling.  As stated on their website, Veterans Outreach’s mission is: “To serve veterans with compassion and advocate for all who have worn our nation’s uniform so they can RISE and live life to the fullest.”

“We always look forward to teaming up with Pro-Tech in an effort to support military families,” said Katie Sandieson, Western Products director of advertising and communications. “It is a great opportunity for us and our customers to show our appreciation to our service members—past and present.”
