Munchies 4 the Military returns

Inspirada, the master-planned community in Henderson, has partnered with Liberty High School and city of Henderson for the ninth annual Munchies 4 the Military, a donation drive and volunteer event founded by the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation (DJGMF). Suni Chabrow, DJGMF founder, created the foundation in honor of her son, SPC Douglas J. Green, who was killed in action during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2011.

This year’s event, presented by the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation, called on the community to donate items from a wish list that includes snack foods, breakfast and hygiene items and more for DJGMF’s care packages.

On Saturday, community volunteers and students from Liberty High School will box up wish list donations to assemble care packages that will be sent to military service members and families who are deployed overseas.

Community members can contribute by making monetary donations, which will help offset the cost of postage, approximately $17 per box. This year, the goal is to assemble 500 care packages. To make a monetary donation, visit Munchies 4 the Military 2023 Donation Drive at inspirada.com.

With a projected build-out of 8,500 homes within the Inspirada villages by Inspirada Builders, LLC, Inspirada is home to more than 12,000 residents who have access to programs and activities managed by a full-time staff that creates social calendars to bring neighbors together in the parks and the Inspirada Community Center.
