    HOT Community Members Help Troops



    Kristen Maddox of HOT


    GIVING THANKS THIS THANKSGIVING
    Regardless of your position on the Iraqi War, you must admire local efforts to support the fighting men and women in the United States Armed Forces. Kristen Maddox of Santa Ana saw a need to send America's "brave men and women things from home". To do that she started the non-profit Helping Our Troops Inc.(HOT). Service pesonnel mail or email personal requests to HOT and they purchase whatever they want and ship the idems directly to the service persons address overseas, "just like an extended family". HOT delivers to U.S. service personnel all over the world including Iraq, Afganistan and Kosovo.

    HOT has received a lot of help from the Greater Orange Communities. The Villa Park Rotary, and the Villa Park Ralphs Market have supported HOT. The Serrano Water District, and Fran Kreisburg of Villa Park, as well as customers of Rockwell's Resturant have all received special thanks from HOT for their generous support. In addition, students from El Modena High School's Interact Club have volunteered countless hours to HOT.

    As an official 501 (c) 3 Non-profit, donations to HOT are tax deductable and can be mailed or done online (see link below. Families and friends of military personnel serving overseas are encouraged to give the troops HOT's email or mailing address and tell them to send their requests and maiing address.
