3rd annual Adopt a Military Family for Christmas Presents project

Dear Friends,

We have received a HUGE response to our 3rd annual Adopt a Military Family for Christmas Presents project. Nearly 2000 FAMILIES ARE WAITING TO BE ADOPTED!

Our goal is to help military families in need with Christmas presents for their children, along with a grocery gift card or prepaid Visa gift card for the family to purchase their holiday dinner and trimmings.

If you can't adopt a military family by yourself, please considering pairing up with another family, or organizing your church, workplace or community group to adopt a family. This project is a great way to connect one on one with military families to offer a special Thank You this holiday season by providing food and gifts for a Military Family!

What am I expected to provide the families?

For each family adopted, you are to provide a minimum of $50-$100 food gift card for a holiday meal, depending on the size of the family and gifts for each child in the amount of $20 - $50. All toys must be new and age appropriate. We ask that you wrap the gifts and ship the presents to your family you are matched with, so the families can receive your gifts before the Christmas holidays.
