We are continuing to see an increased need in both demand and support for this program. These young heroes and their families are voluntarily serving and sacrificing daily so we can continue to enjoy our freedoms and way of life.
Your support demonstrates an appreciation for the sacrifices required of these dedicated defenders of our country. We look forward to receiving your support to continue making military life easier this holiday, and every holiday season.
Operation Holiday Joy was initially established in collaboration with Woman’s Day Magazine and their readers to raise awareness and funds for military service members and their families during the holidays.
Since 2004, Operation Holiday Joy supporters have donated more than $1.5 million for military and their families. Your generosity has allowed us to purchase and distribute more than 320,000 toys as well as deliver over 25,000 baskets of food for Thanksgiving and Christmas to junior enlisted families in need.
100% of your donation goes to purchasing food and toys this holiday season, please click on the donate button below.We appreciate your contribution. Thank you for helping make the holidays bright for so many deserving military families. We help as many junior enlisted families possible, but many more will go without. Any contribution is greatly appreciated and will make a difference for a military family.
If you are a service member or family member in need, please find your local branch to learn more about Operation Holiday Joy programming available where you live.
If you are a business owner or corporate representative and are interested in supporting Operation Holiday Joy, please contact Sharon Gleason, EVP of Financial Development.
