Holiday Help for Military Families

$6,223 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 57 people in 39 months
There are hundreds of families of deployed service members and wounded warriors across the country that are at risk of not having a proper holiday meal. Our Adopt-a-Family program matches military families with volunteers to make sure there’s food on the table and gifts under the tree. We will have over 1500 applicants for assistance this year and will have about 800 matched up with an adopting family. This leaves 700 military families still at risk of not having a happy holiday season. Soldiers’ Angels helps to provide meals and gifts.   

Donations in the following amounts can help:

$25-35 will provide gifts for one child
$50 provides a holiday meal for a small family (feeds 4-5)
$100 provides a holiday meal for a large family (feeds 6+)
$200 adopts a family to ensure they have food and gifts

We also ask that you create your own campaign to help adopt some military families in need. Click HERE to set up your own campaign to help adopt a few families. The families appreciate every donation and equally appreciate helping to spread awareness. None of our veterans and their families should go without a hot meal this holiday season. We thank you all for your support!

As we approach our final few hours of the Holiday Help for Military Families campaign, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has donated in support of our military families! Your generosity is overwhelming and we are so grateful we will be able to reach even more deserving families. Military families sacrifice so much for us and the chance to give back to them is a great honor.

Thank you again and Happy Holidays!

Christmas week is finally here! Thanks to your generous support and the support of all our Angel volunteers, we are getting many wonderful emails from military & veteran families just like this one:

"I am so thankful for this program it means more than words can describe. My children will have joyous Christmas thanks to this program and the selfless adopting angels and their families that make this program possible. As an adult I realize that Christmas is not about gifts and presents but for my 9 and 1 year old...just to see them smile in anticipation of what "Santa" has brought; brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. With out my adopting angel none of this would have been possible.

I send a very heartfelt thank you to EVERYONE involved in this wonderful program.

Happy holidays and Happy New Years to all."

We will be wrapping up our GoFundMe campaign soon! So please help us spread the word once more so we may reach even more families!

Happy Holidays everyone! This is a charity I work with throughout the year. A special place in my heart for the deployed and veterans. It's hard for me to believe that our military families may go without Christmas this year. We have donated and hope that you might be able to spare a little to help them. Much love to everyone!

About the Organization
Soldiers' Angels provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and a growing veteran population. They give tens of thousands of Americans the opportunity to volunteer and to directly and personally show their support to our military and their families.

Founded in 2003, Soldiers' Angels began with one mother whose deployed son said he was one of the few soldiers receiving care packages. She gathered friends & neighbors to help send packages to his entire platoon and soon realized how much more aid was needed. Within just a few months, Soldiers' Angels went from a dedicated mother sending a few extra care packages and letters, to an Internet community with thousands of Angels worldwide.

To date, Soldiers' Angels has sent hundreds of thousands of care packages and millions of letters and cards to deployed service members. Volunteers and supporters have also made it possible for Soldiers' Angels to send tens of thousands of First Response Backpacks, voice-controlled/adaptive laptops to over 6,000 severely-wounded service members, and other technology that supports rehabilitation.

Soldiers' Angels is the largest volunteer-centered organization dedicated to supporting troops, veterans, and their families, who are all dedicated to a powerful mission:

May no soldier go unloved,
May no soldier walk alone,
May no soldier be forgotten,
Until they all come home.
