We’ve just received the statistics from the 2015 holiday season’s Adopt-a-Military Family program and we’re so pleased to announce that the program was a HUGE success! First and foremost, we want to extend an immense thank you to Nei Dentler, a NEOPAT volunteer, for coordinating this program. With Nei’s support and hard work, 216 children were able to have a better holiday season! Here are the numbers, in comparison with the previous year’s stats:
-We adopted 68 military families in 2014 and 90 in 2015!
-55 sponsors adopted 79 families in 2015 and gift cards were donated to the remaining 11.
-We had 24 repeat sponsors from 2014.
-In total, 216 children were given toys, clothes, etc. Some families were in shelters for the holidays that the VA and TFAC helped to deliver those gifts to.
Thank you to all sponsors, volunteers, individuals, families, etc. that donated or adopted families this holiday season. Your acts of kindness sincerely help brighten the lives of military families and their children during this time of year. They won’t forget it!
