Holiday Community Partners

Who We Are and What We Do

Holiday Community Partners Program is CLOSED for 2016

Thank you for your interest in our program, but the Holiday Community Partner Program is now closed for the 2016 Holiday Season. We have exceeded our goal and we look forward to collecting even more stockings next year! For businesses with large numbers, exceptions can be made. Email InKind@soldiersangels.org with questions.

Community Partners team with Soldiers’ Angels to provide support to military families, wounded heroes, deployed service members and veterans. They can be individuals, families, civic groups, businesses, churches, schools, scouts, sororities, or youth groups who have a desire to serve military families.

Holiday Community Partners work specifically during the holiday season to provide cards, letters, and stuffed stockings for our troops and veterans.

How You Can Help

As combat deployments continue to drawdown many charities, including Soldiers' Angels, have discontinued the acceptance of holiday cards and letters to the troops. The volume of cards and letters exceeded our distribution abilities.

While most charities will not, Soldiers' Angels will continue to accept your holiday cards and letters from our Holiday Community Partner members only!

We will accept your cards and letters but each card and/or letter must be placed into a stocking filled with goodies for our troops and veterans. Soldiers' Angels will deliver your stocking to a deployed service member or veteran patient.

Stockings can be purchased and filled for a minimal price, which makes this the perfect project for a school, church or other civic group. Stockings can come in small to large sizes depending on your teams budget.

Stockings must be sent to your designated area representative no later than December 11.

Availability is limited, so apply to become a Holiday Community Partner now!

Due to the volume of stockings we expect to receive, please fill out and submit your application** to become a Holiday Community Partner in advance, so we can secure your spot in this program. **Registration is now closed.

Soldiers' Angels will only accept Holiday Community Partner applications through November 1st, 2016 or until we reach our capacity to distribute the stuffed stockings.

Besides a card and/or letter in each stocking, stockings should also include any combination of the following:

  • Slim Jims or Beef Jerky
  • Packages of Holiday nuts
  • Playing cards
  • Puzzle book (Crosswords, Sudoku, Word Find)
  • Holiday themed writing pens or pencils
  • Holiday candy
