"About four years ago I applied on behalf of a member in my squad, who was also a member of HOG, who lost his wife unexpectedly. The procedure was simple and was approved.”
"I had heard that the process is very difficult which is not the case at all. I've learned to accept and ask for help even when I think I don't need it. Going to Hearts of Gold eased a lot of concern. I am grateful for the Foundation and proud to be a member. I see firsthand how I am helping those who need help even when they don't think they do."
“Hearts of Gold helped me a lot. They were a blessing you have no idea how much that check helped me out when I received it. I was going through the mourning process of losing a family member and the financial burden on top of that when Hearts of Gold helped me and I count my blessings that this program was in place and saw fit to extend that help.”
“It was positive and confidential, which was most important to me. They helped me and my family through two deaths in a matter of six months...can't thank them enough”
“My brother-in-law died unexpectedly at 33 years old. At the time, I was unable to afford a last minute airline ticket to fly back for the funeral and to help my sister. HOG was able to give me quick access to funding my airline ticket and a rental vehicle while attending the funeral. I appreciate the ability to go back and support my sister during this difficult time.”
"When I joined Hearts of gold, I did it to help my peers in need. I never thought I would need assistance myself. Hearts of Gold approved my request and helped to lift some of the financial burden off my shoulders. Knowing that I have the support from my peers and assistance from Hearts of Gold makes my fight easier. From the bottom of my heart and my family's heart, thank you."
