Lines of Hope Annual Campaign

The ASIS Foundation supports Lines of Hope, an annual campaign to raise funds for to provide vital support services for wounded U.S. soldiers.

We are proud to report that ASIS members and chapters and corporate sponsors have given almost $140,000 for support, services and training to recovering troops and their families since 2009.

ASIS member Kevin T. Doss, CPP, PSP, began the effort to help soldiers stay in touch with loved ones in 2007 by raising funds to purchase prepaid calling cards for the wounded soldiers at the local chapter level.  Over the years, the focus has changed to providing support through other worthy programs that assist soldiers recovering from traumatic injuries at Walter Reed Hospital. 

In 2014, Lines of Hope continued its support of the Warrior Transition Brigade’s service dog training program that employs soldiers in transition and touches the lives of scores of others on base and in the community. Gift cards and additional training equipment were purchased. The balance of the funds raised was sent to the Red Cross to fund the needs of the warriors there ranging from mouthwash to adaptive equipment.

Neither the Red Cross nor the Foundation charge an administrative fee so all donations go directly to support the warriors, their families and all the heroes who serve them at Walter Reed.

Contributions

Donations to the campaign will be accepted online through the Foundation website, as well as by mail. Individual members and friends, as well as organizations, are encouraged to give at any time throughout the year.

Presentation of Gifts

Each December, product or service donations will be presented to soldiers and their families in treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD. Major contributors will be invited to attend the presentation.
