Vet Nonprofit Efforts Crushed

During our Festival in Oak Grove KY, (Salute to Ft Campbell) a 70mph+ wind shear and storm came through and destroyed all of our festival items, products, tables and tents. Over $2500 worth of products and materials were totally ruined.

After 23 years in the military and 5+ deployments I started 1st Sgt Salsa as therapy to help me cope with my PTSD/Depression, broken back and cancer. We  took all of the profits from the sales of our products to help other military families in need. We typically purchase groceries and have also bought several AC units for families. To date we have given over $10K to families in need thru the sales of our products and generous donations.

We have grown over the past 4yrs & are now a Nonprofit Organization named Patriot Strong, LLC, but we do business as 1st Sgt Salsa, LLC. With the profits and donations we assist military families, veterans & first responders with purchasing them food and other necessities. However, we now are Unable to do so until our products & festival items (i.e. Salsa/Jelly/Glaze/Spices, Tent, dry goods, tables etc...) are replaced and in good working order.

We have less than $10 usable funds in our account to move forward and do not have the funding to continue without your help. And will be unable to attend festivals and other venues that help raise the needed funds that help our military, veterans and first responders which means we are at a complete standstill.

Some ask " Whats your salary", "Don't you pay yourself"?- The answer is NO! Neither my wife nor myself collect a salary, our operating costs are approximatly 32% and we give the remaining profits directly to helping others. That way we can maximize our mission on helping those who have sacrificed for us.

Your help is desperately needed NOW to help us survive and get back on our feet. We began this nonprofit as a way to help others in need and now we need your help to recover from this disaster.
Even $5 is helpful to get us to our goal. Any assistance is greatly appreciated and will help us recover from this disaster.

We do not like to see our military struggle to put food on their tables and are forgotten. Don’t let another military patriot be an Unknown Soldier,
Help us recover and get back on track to helping those in need that have served us! Please share this with your friends and family to get the word out of our plight.
Can you just spare $5 to help us?
