Each year Gold Star Dads of America sponsors the Home Front Hero Christmas Project. Christmas 2017 will be the first time we have done this event in Houston, Texas. The plan is to deliver Christmas to Combat Deployed Families, i.e. the spouse and children of service members currently serving in hostile situations around the globe.
In years past the American Legion Riders and Patriot Guard Riders took part and helped us make early morning deliveries to Military Families with deployed Fathers. This is one of the most rewarding endeavors we take on as a group, and watching the faces of the kids and wives is the best Christmas present you will ever receive, a true blessing for everyone involved.
In 2016 due to budget constraints we were only able to do our Camp Hope Christmas party and a few Secret Santa projects.
Home Front Hero Christmas 2017
This year 2017, through the generous donations of the Gold Star Dads Sponsors we project having enough funds to treat 10 families and the deployed spouse to a wonderful Christmas Surprise and still do our secret Santa projects.
Each Home Front Hero wife will receive a wonderful Christmas stocking which will include $150 gift cards to both H.E.B. & Walmart and a $25 Starbucks card along with a nice assortment of Girlie Girl stuff to pamper them. The children will also received stockings and the family will receive presents of games and toys. (Total value per family is $750 – $1,000 depending on size.) Unfortunately we can ONLY Bless families in the Houston and surrounding areas.
First off I want to thank God for blessing this organization. I also want to thank, in advance, everyone who will be donating money and time. All the donations are important from the corporate sponsors to the $25 helper donations, each one gets us closer to our goal.
