Helping Uplift Grieving Survivors (HUGS) is a program formed by the ladies at Police Wives Online. HUGS is a condolence and support program for families and departments who have lost a loved one or comrade in the line of duty. Many of the members of Police Wives Online volunteer their time as HUGS Sisters. HUGS Sisters provide an outreach system for grieving families in their area. They provide a card with their name, phone number, email address, and grief resources, should the surviving spouse or department wish to seek support.
Along with HUGS, the staff at Police Wives Online is coordinating new programs, including a scholarship fund for families of police officers, and they need your help in jump starting these programs.
There are two ways to support PWO:
(1) monetary donations - Donate money directly through the Police Wives Online website or here at the PWO Blogathon website!
(2) shopping through iGive - This comes at no additional cost to you. Just sign up and shop!
Let me stress that no donation is too small!
