The Adopt a Soldier program was founded in 2009 as a commitment to make a difference in the lives of soldiers and their families. The overall mission of this program is to inform and educate in regards to the needs of soldiers and their families through events and workshops. The program also ensures that each individual soldier receives a care package and support families back home in need of items such as; financial support, clothing or resources.
The program also helps soldiers who have suffered a severe loss or crisis back home such as; illness, loss of home or any financial need that can be supported. The Adopt a Soldier program is open to all soldiers and family members to ensure that all service members receive the support and assistance needed.
If you are a deployed soldier or know of a solider overseas, you are eligible to sign up online. In 2009 over 2,000 care packages have been sent and in 2010 the goal was to send 100,000. The programs overall goal is to ensure all soldiers receive a package.
