One Soldier at a Time is dedicated to our men and women serving our country past, present, and future, including their families.  We honor family members of active military for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and Christmas by delivering gift baskets to all of the family members on our list.  We pack and ship sun care/goodie packages to current military serving our country overseas. We help local Veterans who are either homeless impoverished living in PTSD homes or various VA hospitals by providing bedding, clothes, pots and pans, hygiene packages and coffee.  We call these Hygiene Packages of Hope.  We support 4 VA hospitals with Christmas stocking gifts.
