Now, a new organization has been established in Valdosta to educate the public on giving back to soldiers. C.R.O.S.S., Community Reaching Out to Support Soldiers, held its first meeting this week.
The club's goal is to provide information and support to both current soldiers and veterans. They are also arranging events to honor troops on patriotic holidays so that those days aren't simply treated as days off from work.
"What we're hoping the club can do is provide information for the community about what they can do to support soldiers," says Halley Little, C.R.O.S.S. co-founder. "A lot of people out there have a good heart. They want to help; they just don't know how. We want to be the access point for people becoming involved."
The club holds it meetings at the South Georgia Regional Library in Valdosta. If you'd like to become a member of C.R.O.S.S., you can contact Halley Little at 229-333-0086, ext. 222. You can also e-mail Halley at email@example.com
