Jessica’s Hope Project is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that sends fitness care packages to members of the United States military stationed around the world. One day, founder Jessica Maddin read a statistic about how the average soldier loses 50 pounds during deployment. This doesn’t seem right, she thought, someone should do something. So she did. A receptionist at 24 Hour Fitness, Jessica emailed a corporate executive about helping out; he agreed and the Jessica’s Hope Project was born. The organization provides the soldiers with protein bars, vitamin supplements, and other healthy options. Jessica packs them up and sends them to military men and women with a note of thanks. The impact on the troops is profound as the Project’s website conveys.
