Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Storm Boen, co-founder of Cigars for Warriors joined Chad in the KFYO studio to talk about the fantastic Lubbock based organization.

Cigars for Warriors is an international charity which provides premium cigars for free to troops who are based in combat zones or who are on long-term deployments, with the goal of helping to keep troop moral up especially through rough ordeals.

Cigars for Warriors has been active for about 4.5 years, and shipped over 92,000 cigars in it's first year. Boen said,

Even to this day, we're still shipping out twenty five to thirty thousand cigars every single month, on a completely volunteer program.

Donated cigars are provided only to those troops who specifically request them, and over 750,000 cigars have been shipped since September 1st.

More information about the organization, including information for those wishing to volunteer or donate, is available on the Cigars for Warriors website or it's Facebook page, as well as Twitter and Instagram.

Donation centers in the Lubbock area are Smoker's Haven and Know a Guy Cigar Lounge
