Stories That Inspire 

Soldier On

Equipment Grants Program

“Since leaving "The Canadian Armed Forces," I have experienced feelings of isolation. However, with the support of my friends, family, and the Soldier On organization, I have been able to push myself beyond my comfort zone. One particular resource that has greatly enhanced my life is the fishing kayak I was able to purchase through the Soldier On equipment grant program. This kayak has opened up numerous opportunities for me to join fishing and paddling clubs, allowing me to spend more time outdoors and connect with like-minded individuals. Not only has it improved my physical well-being, but it has also positively impacted my mental and emotional state. The Soldier On program has truly been instrumental in helping me overcome obstacles and find a sense of belonging in my post-military life.”

Holiday Hamper Program

“The Holiday Food Hamper Program is a vital resource that I am very grateful to experience.  It allowed for the opportunity to feel very blessed during the holidays. Having a special meal brought family together where the stresses such as finances and others were put on pause.  We were able to connect with family and create heartfelt memories that would last a lifetime.”

Soldier On

Equipment Grants Program

"I have always loved golfing and being active. It has been 4 years since I was diagnosed with PTSD. I stopped everything, found myself alone in life, and was uncertain about what was next. However, I found help and even though I still have some tough days, I am trying my hardest to get through this One Day at a Time. I am fortunate to have 3 good buddies who share my love for golf, and I have been able to go out with them four times now. This is a significant accomplishment considering the past 4 years. Thanks to the financial assistance from the Soldier on Grant Program, I am finally doing something that, due to my current financial situation, I would otherwise not have been able to do. So, thank you to Soldier On for making this possible.”
