Hometown Heroes: From our Home to the Hearts of our Troops

May 1, 2020 – The Hometown Foundation, Inc. is spreading hope from our community to our soldiers overseas. In conjunction with Big Y World Class Market, IGA Independent Retailers, and the Portland Sea Dogs we were able to send over 40 boxes of supplies filled with beef jerky, gum, snacks, soap, body wash, books, baseballs, baseball bats, socks, and so much more to the military units. These supplies were collected in the past couple of months and the shipment arrived this past week.

The supplies were delivered to the Ammunition Specialist Unit and were then dispersed throughout the troops. PFC Erika Barolli joined this Unit in the military in 2018 and was a former employee of Bozzuto’s Inc. in the Fleet Maintenance Department. Bozzuto’s, Inc. is a family run business and believes in giving back to those in our community and abroad. The Hometown Foundation aligns with this mission and reaches out with open arms and giving hands when called upon.

The Hometown Foundation, Inc. appreciates those who support and protect our freedom. It is no easy feat being thousands of miles away from home so giving the soldiers a sense of comfort is the least we can do. The donation was made possible thanks to our family of retailers and community partners. Thank you to our Hometown Heroes who constantly fight on the front lines and defend our country. No amount of gratitude will ever equal the sacrifice you make but we will continue to support you every single day.
