The holiday season can be especially difficult for deployed service members and veterans in VA Hospitals.

Let’s come together and send them some holiday cheer.

Nothing can replace the sense of being with loved ones during the holidays, but receiving a stuffed holiday stocking will help to brighten the spirits of deployed service members and veterans. Soldiers’ Angels Holiday Stockings for Heroes does just that!

Who can participate?

Anyone can participate! Looking for a new holiday family tradition? Or perhaps a way to engage your employees? Maybe you just need a virtual volunteer activity to keep you busy at home? Either way, Holiday Stockings for Heroes is just what you’ve been looking for and is great for groups of 1 to 1,000.

Donated stockings will be shipped to service members deployed to combat zones, veteran patients in VA Hospitals across the country, and, this year, the stockings will also be shared with the frontline workers supporting COVID-19 operations, including National Guard and Reserves Units, as well as VA Healthcare Workers.

What do I do?

It’s simple! Collect items from our list of suggested items, stuff them into a holiday stocking and send to Soldiers’ Angels. We’ll take care of the rest!

If you’re coordinating a large group, consider hosting a collection drive for the items you will need. Once you have enough items collected, you and your group can come together in-person or virtually and stuff the stockings! You can also make/write a personal card or letter that can be included in the stocking.

Hint: Deployed Service Members love to receive homemade cards/drawings/creations from the kiddos inside their stuffed stockings, so be sure to let them help too!
