We want to share with you the powerful impact financial partnerships have in encouraging military families.
Samantha was a young wife when her husband was deployed for the first time. Like many military spouses, she faced countless challenges, including being away from family, shouldering financial responsibilities, and coping with feelings of nervousness, anxiety, and depression.
It was in the middle of these hardships she received encouragement and support from caring individuals to keep her going. Samantha attended a Support Military Families event and received an Appreciation Care Package made possible by our financial partners.
“When I received the care package,” Samantha said, “I went to my car and cried.” In her care package was a thank you note personally written to honor and encourage her.
Simple acts of kindness from people just like you make all the difference to military families in their time of need. By partnering with Support Military Families, compassionate donors were able to show Samantha appreciation, love, and support during her most difficult days. She says she greatly appreciates those who took the time to remember her.
Samantha is just one example of how much YOUR HELP MATTERS in supporting and honoring the sacrifices military spouses and their families make daily, here at home.
