HOSPITAL VISITS

“Taste of Home” Hospital Visits

 

In 2006, the pastor of Park Valley Church in Haymarket, Virginia, asked the small group leaders in the church to organize a 40-day community service project. One of these small groups organized a “taste-of-home” Christmas celebration for service members undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.  This event ignited a passion in the hearts of the group’s leaders who decided to host additional holiday events at military hospitals on a continuing basis throughout the National Capital Area, which continues to this day.  
 

We host organize these “taste-of-home” events at military hospitals throughout the National Capital Region, including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.  These visits include an ever-changing variety of home-cooked meals and deserts and gifts for the warriors and families. Willing Warriors was established in 2013 and has continued with this tradition; the root cause and motivating force of our mission.

To date, Willing Warriors has hosted special events of all kinds for more than 6,500 troops and family members providing more than $300,000 in the form of home-prepared meals, gifts, and prizes. Most importantly, our volunteers extend their heartfelt gratitude to the recovering service members and their families and also extend an invitation to come and stay at our Warrior Retreat.

 BBQ Events

We have continued in the vein of our Christmas hospital visits by hosting other “taste-of-home” events like summer BBQs at military hospitals throughout the National Capital Region, including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.

As of December 2016, our volunteers hosted special events of all kinds for more than 5,000 troops and family members providing home prepared meals, gifts, and prizes. Most importantly, our volunteers extend their heartfelt gratitude to the recovering service members and their families and let them know about the opportunity to come and stay at our Warrior Retreat.
