community service program that is inclusive to
students and provides them with opportunities to
thank our soldiers for their service, dedication and
sacrifice in protecting our freedom and keeping our
country secure. It was founded by a fifth grader in
Forsyth County, Georgia and benefits our brave
troops by collecting items from their "Wish List"
that they need or want. These are items that are not
readily available or not provided, but that add
comfort and fit in their backpacks.
The program also benefits the children of our active
military by providing back packs and school supplies
to those who need assistance.
It starts with an

through local Chapters at schools, churches,
clubs or anywhere else girls gather. We
encourage high school girls to think outside the
box if their school is unable to host Girl Talk
meetings at their school. The complementary goal
of our program is to provide high school girls
with a unique leadership opportunity in which
their positive choices and example can have a
lasting effect on younger girls. Through the
engagement of both age groups, it is also our
goal to have a meaningful impact on the broader
community by teaching the importance of giving
back and making community service an integral
part of the program and, we hope, a habit for
participating girls as they move into adulthood.
Why the Need:
Our troops appreciate any support from home that
they can get. It makes coping with being
overseas easier. It gives them hope and inspires
them. It motivates them and gives them emotional
support at a great time of need. It is a morale
booster and lifts their spirits. It is a
realistic way to show them that we are grateful
for their service and sacrifice and that they
are not forgotten.
With the help of the VFW Post 9143, C4G has
collected and sent thousands of items of comfort
overseas to our service men and women.
Collecting school supplies for the children of
active-duty soldiers who need assistance and
items of comfort from the “Wish List” is
on-going year round.
