Support Our Troops
Every day Freedom Alliance pays tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who wear our nation’s uniform and fight for our freedom. We do this through our Support Our Troops program, a year-round outreach which honors members of our Armed Forces – those who have been wounded in combat and are recuperating at military hospitals throughout the United States – as well as those currently serving on the frontlines. We also provide support and comfort to grieving military families, whose loss is immeasurable.
Troops Appreciation Events
Freedom Alliance has no shortage of creative supporters who host events to benefit our Support Our Troops program. These events include golf tournaments, car shows, bake sales, outdoor sporting contests, and Poppy’s Wish Heroes Vacations to name a few.
Troop Appreciation Dinners
For several years now Freedom Alliance has been hosting Troop Appreciation Dinners to honor America’s troops for their service and sacrifice. For some service members the dinners are the first “thank you” they have received since joining the military. For injured service members a dinner is often the first public outing they attend.
Presents for Patriots
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 for our military families. As difficult as these situations can be, this need creates an advantageous time to demonstrate goodwill for ou
r heroes at home.
The Freedom Alliance Presents for Patriots program is our way to give each home in hardship the assistance they need.Working with contacts at bases across the country, families are identified and put in touch with us.
We work with these families to ensure every gift is special and that each child receives the Christmas they deserve. Last year, we were able to take on 53 families, impacting all together 231 people and this year our goal is to provide Christmas for 75 families!There many ways you can be involved this year, for more information contact Jennifer Ohman at jen.ohman (at) freedomalliance.org.
