Last night, my husband and I ate dinner at Pine Lodge. As we waited for our dinner, we noticed a table tent advertising Murphy-Goode “Homefront Red.”
According to the label, “Murphy-Goode is committed to quality winemaking and having fun. We also believe in giving back, and that’s why we’ve crafted Homefront Red. A portion of the proceeds from every bottle sold will go to Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides emergency and financial assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors.”
Let’s just say that it’s fine as a table wine. The idea, though, to give people an easy way to support our troops—especially over the holiday season—really struck a chord. The winery’s goal: Raise $300,000 for Operation Homefront.
Naturally, after we got home, I had to check out Operation Homefront’s website. The organization’s mission: To give RELIEF during a crisis, offer a place to RECOVER if military members and their families need it, and a little bit of RECOGNITION for a life of sacrifice.
If you’re interested in helping directly, you can visit the Operation Homefront website. They accept donations for ongoing areas of general need (such as housing, electric bills, car repairs, and life transition to name a few) to individual needs that are too numerous to mention.
If you want to lend a helping hand to someone with a specific need, please visit their “needs list.” Or, you can always support the cause by buying a bottle of Murphy-Goode’s Homefront Red. It looks as if $1 from every sale goes to Operation Homefront.
Thank you, Murphy-Goode, for raising awareness for this very important charity.
