HUGS FOR SOLDIERS, founded in 2003, is a ministry of Duluth First United Methodist Church, Duluth, Georgia.  The ministry was started as a way to support and provide encouragement to U.S. military personnel who were deploying overseas.  

With the help of church members and the community, Hugs for Soldiers started sending care packages, cards and letters of encouragement overseas to the 2-69 AR, a Battalion of 800 Soldiers of the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, based out of Fort Benning, Georgia.  Along with many supporters and volunteers, the program has grown to what it is today. The Hugs for Soldiers team maintains contacts with deployed military commanders, chaplains and other responsible troop leaders in order to send shipments of care packages.
