Many military children wake up with little to no gifts on Christmas morning because their families are struggling to make ends meet. For so many of these heroic families the holidays can be a stressful, disappointing time...especially for families of troops deployed over Christmas.
So, to say thank you to the families of deployed service men and women for their invaluable sacrifices, we launched a special program to help provide Christmas gifts for military families in need. 2013 marks our 7th year connecting individuals, businesses and groups with military families in need for the holidays.
Sponsors Wanting to Adopt:
To learn more about adopting a military family for Christmas, please visit our Adopt a Family page and sponsorship form.
We have currently reached max capacity for families applying or nominated to be adopted. However, if we have enough sponsors willing to participate, we plan to do an after-Christmas gift card donation program. So check back later for news on that.
An Update from TMF's Founder (11/26/13):
“My husband is on his second Iraq tour and we couldn’t be more honored. Still, money is very tight and it is a tough burden to have to tell your loved one, who is fighting a war, that he can either call home every other day or pay for Christmas gifts for our kids. But Thank Military Families provided gifts and stockings for each of our kids as well as many other military families in need.”
