Soldiers' Angels Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program

Please note: Adopt-a-Family registration for military families is now closed. Registration for volunteers who wish to adopt a military family for the holidays is still open!

Military family at the holidays

Military families usually live on a very tight budget, so putting together a Christmas or other winter holiday celebration can be a real challenge for some of them—Soldiers’ Angels is already hearing from hundreds of families who could use a bit of help celebrating this year.

The goal in helping these military families is to show America’s gratitude with presents for the children and a grocery gift card or prepaid Visa gift card for them to purchase their holiday dinner and trimmings.

If you would like to help out by adopting a family for the holidays, you must become a Verified Angel first by clicking here. By becoming a Verified Angel you will be able to not only adopt a military family for the holidays, but also adopt deployed service members, join a letter writing team, sewing, baking team, or choose from one of our 17 volunteer teams working year round to support military families. Once you are registered as a Verified Angel and have access to the Angel database, you will be able to log in to your account and get assigned to a military family in need.

After you're assigned a military family, all you have to do is pick up a gift card for dinner supplies and one present for each of the kids.

If you can't adopt a military family by yourself, please consider teaming up with another family or organizing your church, workplace or community group to adopt. This project is a great way to connect one on one with military families while giving them a special Thank You this holiday season. For groups wanting to adopt a family, only one member of the group will need to register as a Verified Angel.
