Since 2006, tens of thousands of gift-boxes have been sent to deployed U.S. troops in hotspots around the world through the Military Moms’ annual Holidays for Heroes program. From October 15 to December 15, individuals and groups are invited to pick up a “Mailing Kit” at local businesses and churches and then pack and ship a box to one of our heroes. More than ever, those protecting our freedoms need to know how grateful we are for their service. Our Holidays for Heroes Thank You.
Each Mailing Kit contains a flat-rate USPS box; an instruction sheet for packing and shipping; a list of items requested by the troops; and a sample customs declaration form. All venues are in Vero Beach unless otherwise indicated. Our Holidays for Heroes recipients Thank You.
Air Force TSgt. Bryce Saint-Vincent, who served a tour in Afghanistan, shares what your gift boxes have meant to him and his buddies in the video below. The video, which was featured at a countywide celebration on National Philanthropy Day, November 17, 2020, is provided compliments of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Indian River chapter.
