Adopt a Soldier

Give a Gift to those who are Serving Overseas

The Office of Veterans' Affairs and the Student Veteran Organization are pleased to partner with the Adopt a Soldier Program to send holiday gifts to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines serving overseas.

There are many who will not be with their families this Holiday Season.  Help to make their Holidays brighter.  Gifts may be brought to the Office of Veterans' Affairs, SSC 120, and dropped off in the large blue bin.

There are many inexpensive items that will be greatly appreciated overseas.  Here is a wish list of some example items.

Gifts must be dropped off before November 22nd.  Gifts will be packed the next day and sent off to deployed units.  Here is the Program Schedule for this year.

Monetary donations will be utilized to offset the cost of postage and packaging.

See the Official Poster of the Adopt a Soldier Program.
