TEAM HEARTBEAT ~~
Unfortunately, This year we are very short on families able to adopt wounded Warrior families for Christmas.
We know this has been a difficult year for a lot of you that normally adopt so we do not want anyone to feel pressured, but if there is anyone or group that would like to adopt a family yet this year we have about 14 families still left to be adopted.
Thank you for your consideration!!
Adopt a wounded Warrior
or a wounded Warrior and their Military Family
this CHRISTMAS season!
How to adopt: Community Families (individuals and groups: church organizations, businesses, etc.) can sign up online on Heartbeat's website under the Christmas tab. The Warrior or Military Family also fills out an online application; then we match the two.
- Please see suggested minimum expenditures per person these minimums must be followed.
- Please wrap presents and include a card, then set up a meeting that is comfortable for the Warrior or Military Family to deliver the gifts.
- Please be sensitive that some Warriors are just not comfortable in traffic or in crowded areas because of their injuries. Meeting in the visitor's parking lot of JBLM (Joint Base Lewis McChord) is often a good option, if your Warrior or Military Family is in that area. You do not need a pass to meet in the visitor's parking area.
- Generally, going to the Warrior or Military Family's home is not a good option unless the family specifically asks you.
Please read through all the instructions before submitting your form.
Finally, we are still collecting donations and cards for our Christmas Give-a-Gift Card Program through December 10th. Click below if you are interested in donating or have a group, church, or organization that might want to get involved!
Please consider sending us a write-up and some photos of your experience this year! We love to hear about your experiences with the program and we love to get pictures to include in our Christmas newsletter!
As always on behalf of our brave men and women wounded Warriors and their families, THANK YOU! WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
