Christmas can be bittersweet for families depending on their circumstances and this is no less true for those who serve in our nation’s armed forces. There might be a family member deployed overseas during the holiday, or perhaps their loved one has returned not quite the same as when he or she left.
Financial crisis, time constraints, and other stresses can make Christmas a cause for anxiety and sorrow rather than celebration. As difficult as these situations can be, this need creates an opportunity to demonstrate goodwill for our heroes at home.
The Freedom Alliance Presents for Patriots program is our way to help these American Heroes through their time of hardship.
From Marine Corps Base 29 Palms, California to and Parris Island, South Carolina, Freedom Alliance works with military caregivers on military installations across the county to identify families who need help at Christmas.
We speak to each family personally to ensure every gift is special and that each child receives the Christmas they deserve. Last year, we selected 53 families, impacting 231 people. This year our goal is to provide Christmas blessing for 75 families!
“We have a unique opportunity at Christmas to express our gratitude and lift some of the burden for the steadfast, who have sacrificed their health and well-being to serve our country,” says Freedom Alliance president Tom Kilgannon. “This is precisely what Freedom Alliance is committed to do with our Presents for Patriots project.”
