Our Current Goal:

Our current goal is to provide immediate temporary relief, while assisting in the discovery of long term financial solutions.

H.U.G.S for Heroes raises funds throughout the year with events and individual donations – where every dollar raised in Marion County, stays in Marion County. 

In a little over a year of operation, we have financially given local cancer patients and their families the following:

  • Over $30,000 to help with Bills, Groceries and Gas
  • Provided 25 Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals
  • Partnered with Toys for Tots to provide 20+ children with Christmas presents
