The mission is simple. In America, nobody should freeze to death. We bridge the gap between the shelters and homeless camps in the winter. We march out into the woods in late evening hours looking for homeless. We give them coats, hats, gloves, sleeping bags, boots, tents, tarps, and socks. We look even harder for our Veterans. They're usually found helping other people. We do this with no questions asked, no middle man, and we are all volunteers. We say "we" a lot because we are a family. Many people united with one goal. This isn't one of those puppy commercials with the music in the background. This is freezing your butt off, soaking wet from sleet, marching through the woods in the dark, shivering, hoping you don't fall in the river again, emotionally draining work that takes its toll on even the hardest Marines. We go to where the people are. We go to where the homeless call home. We make sure they stay warm. It's that simple.
