Bio

First and foremost - we are parents with active children who have been - scouts, attended the YMCA, been band members, chorus, theater groups, church groups and played sports in town leagues and at school. There is one common thread between all of these activities. There is not enough funding for these extraordinarily important methods of building a good foundation for the kids. Homeland Fundraising started quite by accident. My church group had a fundraiser project. After years of watching charities sell: wrap, candy, candles, discount cards, and overpriced food - I sought out a product that was fairly priced and unique. I bought a few cases of first aid kits, set up a stand for after church with my kids. We sold out. The comments we got from fellow members were "thanks for selling something we can use" and "There should be more of products like these". It's now a family business.I operate the business with the help of my family from my home office and carefully choose my suppliers so that I am sure of the quality of everything we sell. Why Homeland as a name? The company started shortly after 9/11 - when the country came together in a way we haven't witnessed in a long time. Since then a lot of focus is on security and safety. Keeping our Homeland safe is a very important mission. So is making sure we also help our own communities. Hopefully through the efforts of folks like yourself who work with and support kids activities, we can keep our communities programs strong and in turn our nation stays strong long term through our children's growth. The business allows my family to help other organizations like ones we depend on here in Ellington- across the country. We sell from coast to coast. Schools, scouts, sports teams and church groups all use our products. We are grateful for the opportunity to help where we can. Kevin Kevin Kelleher Homeland Fundraising
