Miles for Merry Miracles is a youth-driven, non-profit organization based out of Southern Indiana. We partner with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program to provide a Christmas to children in need. Miles for Merry Miracles got its start as an Eagle Scout Project organized by Nick Hebert in 2008. Nick was so motivated by the service he provided that he decided to do it again the following year. Nick is currently serving as a missionary for the LDS church in Honduras, but his dream has just begun to be realized. To date, M4MM has helped over 1050 children in the local area. Now in our fifth year, our goal for 2012 is to help an additional 500 Angels.
