The Holiday Season is here! We love this time of year and the opportunity it brings us to spend time with our friends and family and make memories with the people we love. This time of year can be particularly tough for military families and service members who are facing a deployment during the holidays. There is no amount of emailing or video chatting that can take the place of physically being with a loved one…especially during the holidays. When you stop and think about how many people are affected by a deployment and how much is sacrificed by both the serviceman/woman and the family that is “left behind”, we can’t help but feel a great sense of gratitude as well as renewed appreciation for all of the blessings we often times take for granted.
Below, we have provided several links below to organizations, projects and foundations that are intended to say “thanks” or serve those who have served in some way. It may be a bit late in the holiday season for some of the projects but many of these groups offer opportunities to help year round.
