Holiday Help: Part 1

Christmas can be a beautiful but extremely difficult time of year for many veterans, active military, and their families. “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” can feel like a cruel joke for some who are experiencing loneliness, sadness, financial difficulties, PTSD or separation from their families and friends.

We wanted to share some resources that can help take the financial burden off military families during the Christmas season. Whether you need assistance or want to volunteer and give back, you’ll find helpful ideas below. Almost all of the links provide options for assistance AND giving. (Deadlines for the resources vary by state, county, and city.)

 

*Christmas Trees

 

*Christmas Gift Assistance/Sponsor or Adopt a Military family

Local Resources

*Holiday Help: Part 2 will feature resources focused on helping veterans and active military with many of the emotional and mental struggles that they may face during the holiday season.
