It all started with a simple question. “How can we give back?“
Last September, Lauren Eliopoulos was sitting in her Mansfield kitchen and brainstorming with two girlfriends. The trio was looking for ways to volunteer their time in a positive manner.
Eliopoulos’s brother, George, had recently completed boot camp in the United States Army. Hearing her brother’s stories inspired her philanthropy.
“My goal was simple: To give back to those who keep us safe,” Eliopoulos said.
With that thought in mind, Hero Helpers of America was born….
Hero Helpers also partnered with the Heartillery Group and created over 600 care packages for active soldiers. On the fourth of July, the group spent the morning bringing breakfast to wounded veterans in the VA Hospital in Brockton.
