Young 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, and now you can step up and adopt a military family for the holidays yourself!
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. To adopt a military family for the holidays, just apply here.
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 while you’re shopping for the kids in your own extended family. Imagine what a relief it will be to the parents, and what smiles you'll put on the faces of the kids!
If you can't adopt a military family by yourself, please considering 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.
Please Note: Processing of applications from both Angels and military families will begin on November 1, 2011.
