Dogs on Duty

Dogs on Duty’s mission is to provide support for working dogs. Many military, police, search and rescue, therapy and service dogs are owned and handled by individuals with little to no fundraising means.

When emergencies strike, these individuals privately fund canine response. Dogs on Duty assists with equipment and funds for these teams.Learn more about Dogs on Duty and how you can help HERE.

H.E.R.O.E.S. Care

H.E.R.O.E.S. Care had a simple beginning; sending care packages to those deployed. Over the years, it has grown to a powerhouse of support for our troops and their families through programs designed for the needs of the present and future.

H.E.R.O.E.S. Care has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of military members. From thousands of care packages to providing direct emergency grants for those deployed totaling more than $1.3 million, distributing more than $157 million in donated products, running seven food pantries, training thousands of volunteers that provide support to deployed spouses, freely giving more than 600,000 diapers per year to struggling military families, providing hundreds of thousands of toys at Christmas and yearly “Suiting a Vet” events.

All this while maintaining the highest ratings with Charity Navigator, Guidestar, Great NonProfits, and the BBB.

Here’s to making a better life for those who have and are still giving so much.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace Logo & Mission: No Kid Sleeps On The Floor in Our Town

Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is on a mission to make sure no kid sleeps on the floor in our town and 97.1 FM Talk is here to help. This month we turn our attention to Sleep in Heavenly Peace IL-Metro East led by Chapter Presidents Jimmy and Karen Sprinkle. There are many ways to help SHP fulfill its mission.

Watch for news and events on Instagram and Facebook: @shpmetroeast
Sign up to be a volunteer HERE.

Every child is given a brand-new twin-sized mattress protector, sheet set, blanket, and pillow along with their new bed. Contact us to arrange a drop-off.

Bedding Drive Items: Brand-new twin-size sheet sets, Brand-new twin-size blankets, comforters, or quilts, Brand-new twin-size waterproof mattress protector, Standard sized pillows

Whether you’re donating $1 or $1,000, every bit helps us achieve the goal of making sure NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN! Donate online HERE.

All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health. That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Our organization has grown steadily over time, and we’re working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people.

FOCUS Marines Foundation

FOCUS Marines Foundation was created in 2010 by Marines who served in the Corps years ago. Following active service, they lived productive and rewarding lives. These Marines, many of whom saw combat in Vietnam, understood firsthand the issues of transitioning from military to civilian lives and were determined to help this new generation of Marines and veterans who served during the war on terror.

Their mission is to develop and administer programs for wounded warriors which will assist them in their transition from military to civilian lives.

Through Conservatives Care, the mission of 97.1 FM Talk is to turn the spotlight on charitable organizations as we work together to make our community a better place.

97.1 FM Talk and the Marc Cox Morning Show are honored to support FOCUS Marine Foundation as they fulfill their mission.
