This all began with a $10,000 donation from Oprah’s Big Give. Mathis Brothers promised to match viewer’s donations up to $10,000. And developer Roger Snellenberger is following suit.

So far, $41,000 in total donations were raised for our troops.

News Channel 3 would like to thank you, the Coachella Valley, in taking part in the Big Give.

Soldiers return from Iraq injured and disfigured, and they don’t always get the help they need. Iraq Star works with returning vets who need extra help teaming up with surgeons and hospitals. Iraq Star helps disfigured soldiers get their lives back to normal. Your generous donation will go a long way to help these men who risked their lives for our country.
