HEROBOX CARE PACKAGES

Since the young age of 6, Danny’s dream after September 11th, was to serve in the military.  His dream was to be a Navy SEAL for many years.  As a senior in high school, he was recruited to play baseball at the United States Merchant Marine Academy (one of the 5 U.S. Military Service Academies).  As his progressed that first year at the academy, he realized that the water was not the place for him and enrolled at Florida International University and the ROTC program where he aspired to be a Ranger.  
Thirteen years later on September 11th, 2014, Danny received his army combat uniform which he wore proudly.  His ultimate dream, more than playing baseball, was to serve his country.  It is his dream that inspires one of the main missions of the foundation.  
 
We partner with HeroBox.org, an organization that pairs heroes and/or troops with sponsors.
PinoStrong Foundation Works with countless volunteers throughout the year to put together HeroBox care packages created with love and filled with everything from snacks to dvd’s that show appreciation for our military.

ABOUT HEROBOX

HeroBox is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, separate from the PinoStrong Foundation, that supports deployed, injured, aging and homeless veterans. Their mission is to ensure that every American hero receives the physical and moral support they deserve.

HAPPY HEROES

Here are just some of the happy moments our team of volunteers experienced at recent HEROBOX gatherings. We look forward to having you join our HEROBOX family and help us make a difference in the lives of our men and women serving our country abroad.

Our first event started in the conference rooms at Richman Greer on November, 2014, only 2 months after Danny’s passing.  We quickly outgrew the conference rooms after our second event.  

Do you have questions about the HEROBOX program?  Reach out to us and we'll gladly answer your questions.

Success! Message received.

The subsequent events have been held in the cafeteria of Coral Reef High School where Samantha and Danny went to high school and Danny played baseball all 4 years.
