Aaron Rodgers Surprises Kids Who Lost Parents In The Military (Video)
For those who have never heard of Camp Hometown Heroes, it is a “national free week-long overnight summer camp for children of fallen U.S. service members who died in any manner: combat, accident, illness or suicide.” Because of their many generous donors, the camp is offered to children between the ages of 7-17, free of charge. During the week the children take part in plenty of typical summer camp activities, like swimming and arts & crafts. But they are also provided with an opportunity to talk about their experiences and feelings with counselors, while also getting the chance to bond with other children who share a similar experience and understanding of their situation.
It really is a good cause, and in an effort to further spread the word and increase the number of donations, Camp Hometown Heroes has enlisted the services of Aaron Rodgers to help get their name out there.
As part of their “It’s Aaron” campaign, Hometown Heroes set up a surprise for four of their camp members by having Rodgers pay them a visit on a boat to ask them some questions about the camp and do some fishing.
The result was a touching moment between the Packers quarterback and four children who are suffering from the loss of a loved one.
