Show love and gratitude in simple ways to those who serve
We work with schools, religious organizations, seniors, veteran’s organizations, corporations, businesses, and other caring communities to collect, assemble, and mail cards and packages to military personnel deployed across the globe, veterans, and their families. Heartillery Group has sent over five million cards and 10,000 care packages since its inception in 2013.
Heartillery Group was created by Emily Spencer, whose husband Scott was deployed to Afghanistan three months after their wedding. What began as a simple family act of support and connection has blossomed into an ongoing global campaign with the goal of ensuring no service member feels alone or unappreciated.
