Veterans Assistance Projects
Active Duty Military Appreciation – Gold Star Dads sponsors Military Family outreach events on military bases and at VA Hospitals across the United States. Events include Welcome Home Celebrations, Military Appreciation Day, Christmas Parties, Unit Birthday parties, veterans assistance. Through these events we honor our sons & daughters and thank the Military Families currently serving.
These events are a great way to help the survivors network with other Gold Star Families and at the same time give back to the men & women who have served to keep this country free for over 230 years.
What are we doing in Texas
- Gold Star Family Outreach – helps keep our members healthy, both physically and spiritually, through peer mentoring, prayer, fellowship events and the annual Gold Star Family BBQ.
- Active Duty Military Outreach – these events are held at military bases and national guard armories throughout the united states. These are done on a local basis by our GSD Chapters.
- “Old Guard” Outreach – these events take place at VA Hospitals and Veteran Centers all year long.
- Combat Deployed Military Outreach – Military Family outreach projects, annually during winter holidays.
Please take a few minutes to check out the calendar and the volunteer projects. There are outreach projects for everyone’s taste, I am sure you can find a favorite or two.
The offer of fellowship and prayer is no small matter to these families. Just knowing that their efforts made a difference and that their sacrifice is appreciated goes a long way in helping them cope with the stress of military life. But we can and must do more.
What is Gold Star Dads doing Nationally
