Project: Honor House

Project Leader: To be decided

Honor House donations will include lap quilts, stockings, Diddy bags, and top bags. To learn more about this veteran's assistance organization, click HERE.

Honor House was founded by Brian Mancini who served two tours in Iraq as a Combat Medic. He was seriously wounded in 2007. He recognized that Veterans dealing with PTS/TBI and other injuries needed more than just traditional medicine. He founded the Honor House, which received its 501C3 in 2012. Brian passed away in 2017 but his legacy lives on providing the help and healing our Veterans need.
