The Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation is an all volunteer, non-profit organization which was formed after the death of Douglas Green in Kandahar, Afghanistan on August 28, 2011. The foundation is dedicated to providing care packages to service members during their deployment. It also offers programs for veterans, parents, spouses and family members relating to PTSD and bereavement programs.
Suni Chabrow is the founder of this inspiring foundation that sends care packages to our military. Suni started the tradition of sending care packages to her son, Douglas Green, in Afghanistan when she learned of the circumstances he was living with on daily basis. Quite often soldiers are in remote locations and do not get sufficient daily nourishment. At times they are only guaranteed one meal a day while facing extreme physical, mental and emotional challenges. Kay Slauson, a dear, loyal and successful patient at Premier Physicians, met Suni Chabrow at her local cycling classes. As she heard more about different fundraisers to collect munchies to fill these care packages, she became more involved in helping this foundation. Knowing that these care packages brightened the day of these soldiers and was a little taste of home, was all the reason in the world for Kay’s involvement. Because of her respect and belief in this foundation, she began volunteering her time and donating her own money to help facilitate these fundraisers. These care packages comfort those individuals that defend our freedom everyday. There could be no better feeling in Kay’s eyes.
My Involvement with the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation
By: Kay Slauson
Being involved with this organization has given me the opportunity to gain new friendships and I can exercise too. I have lost weight with Dr. Trippi’s support over the years. Making right food choices and exercising is the key for me to maintain my body weight. The Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation raises money by running boot camps, they have a 5k run and a 10k race in May. In September, they have a 24 hour Freedom Ride. I committed myself to the 24 hour ride and in doing so had to raise $1000.00. This ride was a personal challenge for me. After all, I’m 68 years old but I had no doubt that I could complete the 24 hour ride. All the volunteers are supportive of me and I even hiked a mountain with them a few weeks ago. But most of all, I was able to support this wonderful organization to continue sending care packages to the military.
