Military Outreach & Support
I don’t have enough space here to share everything that is going on in Houston, Texas and on the national front. As you can see from the list below and the Coming Events Calendar Gold Star Dads has a busy schedule.
- Active Duty Military Outreach – events are held at military bases and national guard armories throughout the united states. Here in Houston events such as Unit Mess Call and Holiday Meal Boxes – Thanksgiving and Christmas Feasts are handled on a local basis by our GSD Chapter.
- “Old Guard” Outreach – these Gold Star Dads events take place at VA Hospitals and Veteran Centers all year long. Events like our “Old Guard Veterans Appreciation Dinner” honoring WWII and Korean War veterans are held every December. Check the calendar for actual dates.
- Combat Deployed Military Outreach – Military Family outreach projects are held annually during winter holidays. Secret Santa Project and Home Front Hero Christmas are a big hit.
- Gold Star Family Outreach – helps keep our members healthy, both physically and spiritually, through peer mentoring, prayer, fellowship events and annual Gold Star Family events.
Please take a few minutes to check out the Gold Star Dads calendar and the volunteer projects. There are outreach projects for everyone’s taste, I am sure you can find a favorite or two.
