Opening Doors to Monthly Donations 

About Door-to-Door Fundraising 

Our Door-to-Door program was designed to reach people in the communities where we are. Our fundraisers go house-to-house to inspire people to support our San Diego service men and women by ensuring no military family is left behind. Speaking to donors one-on-one allows donors to ask questions and learn more about our programs in a way that we could not offer without our partners. 

Service members sacrifice daily for our freedom. Relocations, deployments, and frequent training in the field present unique challenges for military families, impacting spousal employment opportunities, family bonding, and financial well-being. At times, they struggle to fully provide the basics for themselves or their families. 

Our sustaining donor community provides critical funds to create impact where it’s needed most: programs and services to address the unique challenges of military life. These critical services support whole-family wellbeing and include child care, early learning, after-school and resiliency programs for school-age children, emergency assistance, and food security.
