Kindle/ Google Home Mini and Snack Box Giveaway
On June 6th, 2020 Combat Boots 2 The Boardroom passed out 26 Kindles, 4 Google Home Minis, and 30 Snack Boxes to 30 well-deserving military children. The event was held as a way to show our appreciation and as a way to help to help children cope during these unprecedented times. COVID-19 has impacted us all and in particular all of our children. But we also wanted to say thank you to not only the children, but to the entire families as well for your service and sacrifices. Whether your family served for a year or twenty years, the level of service and sacrifice is more than the average citizen can ever imagine. We know the journey was not always easy, but your family persevered. So this was our way of saying thank you. Additionally, a special gift was given to the spouses in honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day.

Combat Boots 2 The Boardroom Gives Back To The 2020 Graduating Class
COVID-19 impacted us all, but the impact on the graduating class was one that no class in recent history had to endure and hopefully no class in the future will have to experience. For those of us who have graduated already we remember the feeling of jubilation and excitement as you got your diploma and heard your family and friends celebrate your achievement. You also remember the celebration with your fellow classmates and the reminiscing of all that you had to endure to get to this point. Unfortunately, the graduating class of 2020 didn't get to have the full experience. As a way of congratulations and giving back to the graduates, we joined in the Buckhead East parade celebrating the graduates and afterwards we gave them a Kits 4 Kids box with small tokens as a way to say congratulations.
Cookies & Cocoa With Santa
Toys For Tots and Cookies With
On Saturday December 14, 2019 Combat Boots 2 The Boardroom hosted our inaugural Toys For Tots Giveaway and Cookies and Cocoa with Santa. Using toys donated by Toys 4 Tots, Combat Boots 2 The Boardroom, and loving citizens, as well as bears donated by Build-A-Bear, we were able to donate toys to over 75 children, helping to make their Christmas a happier one. In addition to receiving toys, the kids and their families were able to make crafts and play games, in which the prizes were hand made blankets, tablets, wireless speakers, and many more items. We were also able to raffle both a girl and boy bike (donated by Ms. Barbara Powers). Last, but certainly not least the kids were able to enjoy some cookies and cocoa with Santa as he delivered toys. Thank you to all those who donated and attended.
Combat Boots 2 The Boardroom held its Inaugural Silent Auction/ Fundraiser on November 8, 2019. The event was decorated by Elegant Vision and the photographs were taken by Meredith Ryncarz.

Thank you to our guest speakers Mr. Al Hagan and Mr. Johnnie Mobley for taking the time to share their stories as well. The event was a success to all those who contributed and volunteered. Because of their hardwork we were able to raise money for our Kits 4 Kids Program, which will allow us to provide "Kits 4 Kids Kits" to children, which will include a customized box, with a special message, tablets, games, craft items, and many other items o provide comfort and support to children.
