Join Courageous Hearts in supporting AZ military families


CBS 5 News is teaming up with Fry's grocery stores to pay it forward to local military families.

Courageous Hearts is a fundraising effort created by Fry's to give back to the people who have sacrificed so much for the country.

Donations are being accepted at your local Fry's store and the money raised stays in your community.

When you purchase a Courageous Heart for a dollar or two, you can dedicate your heart to someone in uniform, past or present or a military family, or you can write in a message of thanks.

The hearts will be posted at the grocery stores.

Fry's said 100 percent of the money will be donated to military charities including Arizona Heroes to Hometowns, Fighter Country Partnership, Packages from Home and USO.

In addition to donating at your local Fry's store, CBS 5 held a phone bank from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, raising $30,000 for the cause.

There is still time to contribute, in-store donations run through Feb. 28.
