Through Support Military Spouses Shoebox Gift program, more than 2,000 North Carolina military spouses received Shoebox Gifts. Support Military Spouses received plenty of great feedback from spouses. The items in the boxes were appreciated but, so, too, were the handwritten notes of gratitude and support. “I wanted to thank you for the shoebox I received,” said Ana Gay. “The note brought tears to my eyes. I appreciate the heartfelt words that were spoken.” “Thank you all so much for the gift,” wrote Cassie Ray. “It really means a lot to so many of us that you are so supportive.” Shoeboxes for Military Spouses is the nation’s only program dedicated to assembling and distributing Shoebox Gifts to military spouses. The generosity of the Walmart Foundation, Penske, Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union, and Garland C. Norris ensured that over 2,000 deserving military spouses received encouragement in the form of a Shoebox Gift.
