Donations "In Kind" Accepted

Entering into our 6th year, A Walk in Their Boots has grown steadily since its humble beginnings in 2012.  With that so too have our needs for support of all kinds. Yet at this time, we have yet to seek 501c3 status as a non-profit organization but will be exploring this following the conclusion of the 2017 event.  However, donations can only be accepted "in kind", so in other words specific items donated to help us in providing the tools and resources needed to conduct the event and help it grow.

Out-of-pocket expenses for holding the 2016 event were shouldered by members of the planning committee.   Those items included the printing of flyers and posters, purchasing the web site domain and hosting plan, printing of veteran letters of invitation and the postage required to mail them. 

Various businesses, Big Johnís Close Outs, Chick-fil-A, Edward Jones Investments, Food City, Ingles Markets, and Walmart, which are also listed on our Sponsorship Page, provided the food and beverages needed to host our first annual Veteran Luncheon.  Our partners in Veteran Hospitality, Borderview Christian Church of Elizabethton Tennessee provided the volunteer manpower and means to cook and serve meals for our veteran guests and their family members.  For those items not covered by donations, individual members of Borderview Christian and our event staff bore the remaining expense.  Over 140 meals were served.

With the huge success of the 2016 event coupled with the anticipated growth for 2017 will stretch us in every aspect so we need your help and support!
