Help A Gold Star Wife Day!

September 29 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm PDT


Amber Hockman (Gold Star Wife) lost her husband to Suicide. Some of you may remember her incredibly brave speech at the 5th Annual PTSD and Suicide Awareness March. An absolutely amazing woman.

Before Amber lost her husband to suicide they were working on multiple projects around their home. Many of those projects never got finished and some never started. After Amber lost her husband I asked her what Twenty22Many could do, if anything, to help her through this incredibly tough time. It was then she mentioned she had a bunch of unfinished projects at home she was finding very difficult to finish.

After speaking with our guys at Twenty22Many we decided that we would, with her permission, put together a day when a bunch of Veterans and Volunteers would come to her home and finish all of her unfinished projects. In one day.

So now we are proud to bring you the very first “Help A Gold Star Wife Day”. We will be running this event in two shifts. Below is a list of the type of volunteers we need and the shifts we will have on this very special day.

We are seeking (Skill Set) in the following:
1) Painters
2) Carpenters
3) Dry Wall
4) Floors

1) Doors need to be painted and then hung
2) Outside of the house needs painting.
3) Dry Wall Hung.
4) Smoke Detectors Hung.
5) Trim painted and installed.

Shifts Available:
1) 10am to 2pm
2) 2pm to 6pm
3) Both 10am to 6pm

What to bring:
1) Tools
2) Extension Cords

1) Any and all supplies needed to complete all any and all projects. Paint, Dry Wall, Nails, Paint Brushes, Wood, Trim etc etc etc
2) Lunch for every volunteer.

This will be a full 8 hour day. If you have any of the skills we are seeking please volunteer. If you know a carpenter please invite him or her to this event. Some of you may be good painters and some of you may know how to lay down trim. Between all of us we should be able to help this Gold Star Wife finish all of these projects at her home.

Please help us in helping this Gold Star Wife. I am sure I don’t need to tell you all the miracles we can make happen when a bunch of Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airman get together to accomplish such an important mission.

If you want to come and volunteer with us on this special day please notify us at Twenty22Many@gmail.com. When you email us please tell us what your skill set is so we can start planning and assigning out these projects with the appropriate volunteers.

The system failed her husband. Let’s not fail her. She so deserves this help. This is the right thing to do.
