In the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Home of Miracles & Embraces, Inc., (HOME), a Stafford, VA based 501(c)(3) organization and in partnership with the American Veterans Ball (AVB). During the months of June and July, we have been very active in helping combat the spread of this virus by donating an air purification unit to senior assisted living facilities for our most vulnerable population of people – our elderly and others that are considered at risk.
Our goal in providing these units is to help mitigate the air within the common spaces that these seniors share and congregate in for activities, meals, and/or self-time doing what they enjoy most at this stage of their lives.
Since the onset of this pandemic, we have all witnessed COVID-19 outbreaks throughout America. These incidents have caused a significant number of fatalities, across the board infections to other residents, and staff members as well - creating a myriad of unexpected challenges beyond readiness without biases or immunity.
We believe that mitigating the air within the contours of the four walls of “ANY” establishment is a critical component in combating COVID-19. “It’s surely worth a try and we certainly do not have anything to lose in our humanitarian quest to preserve life for those we can support,” says Ramos. The founder of the organization and retired Marine Chief Warrant Officer veteran.
We have launched this campaign for individual caring community members, leaders, businesses, and organizations to get involved with this noble effort by helping defray the cost of these units as a SHARED Community Investment. Each time our campaign reaches a new monetary threshold of $600, we will immediately make arrangements to deliver one of these air purification units to an entity. All monetary donations are 100% tax-deductible.
To date the following entities have been supported:
SPECIAL NOTE: We remain open to help and consult for the of support our veteran community, first responders, medical health facilities, churches, and educational institutions.
We can also help assist with an individual/business wanting to sponsor a unit for a specific entity of their choice and directly shipping it to them. More importantly, we encourage other community-based organizations to emulate our efforts to support their own communities.
We are proud to also announce that during the past several months we have been able to support our local Law Enforcement Officials, Regional Jail, Fire Department, Hospital, Churches, and individual community members with the collective distribution of masks, hand sanitizing units, liquid hand soap, face shields, and disinfecting wipes.
We can't thank you enough for your voted trust, confidence, and support during these unprecedented times and in helping us Make a Difference with IMPACT in this SHARED Community INVESTMENT. DONATE Now!
