SAN ANTONIO – Soldiers’ Angels and Angel sponsors are ready to adopt a family and spread holiday cheer. Registration for the Adopt-A-Family program opened Sept. 7 and will close Dec. 6.
The Adopt-A-Family program connects deployed military and veteran families with ‘Angels’ who have a desire to share their gratitude for the sacrifices service members and their families are making for our nation.
Veterans and military families who need support this holiday season are highly encouraged to apply and complete the application process before Dec. 6.
Once adopted, families will receive, at minimum, a grocery gift card for a holiday meal and gifts for each child.
“Affording Christmas or winter holiday gifts for your family can be hard and doing so on deployment or on a military or veteran family budget is event harder,” said Amy Palmer, President and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels.” The goal of the Adopt-A-Family campaign is to ensure that all families who have sacrificed for the good of the nation are provided a holiday they’ve earned and deserve.”
Who can apply?
Though priority is given to families based on their income, Adopt-A-Family is designed to support ALL families.
- Deployed service members who are registered and approved for Soldiers’ Angels Deployed -Support Program, are an E1-E6, meet income requirements, and will be deployed through Dec. 25.
- Families of Post-911 wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans
- Veteran families enrolled in the HUD/VASH program.
To be eligible, all military or veteran families must be a legal guardian to one or more children, aged 18 and under, living in the home and not yet graduated from high school.
Registration for holiday support is now open!
