Some Gave All, All Can Give Some.
ASC's 5th Annual S.O.S Christmas
We began our S.O.S Christmas program in 2018 to give back to the children and families of our servicemen and women, they have sacrificed much, and need to hear from the American people during this special time of the year.
Together, we will be responsible for over 500 Gold Star children having a blessed Christmas morning. There will be caring folks from Tennessee, Georgia , Colorado and Kentucky areas giving back to these children through ASC’s S.O.S Christmas, giving these special military children reason to smile when they wake up on Christmas day. With the love that the Christmas season offers and through your help these children will know that it did matter, and we do care!
There are two ways to participate in ASC’s S.O.S Christmas:
1. Make a Donation: Donate at www.asoldierschild.org/ways-to-donate, so they can reach as many children as possible this Christmas. Your donations are appreciated, and A Soldier’s Child is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and all gifts are tax deductible. ASC operates at 84% - 90% of every dollar going to the children in programs and services.
2. Sponsor a Family: Make a personal connection by selecting an ASC family to sponsor. This can be a great opportunity for families to experience the gift of giving and the true meaning of Christmas.
Here’s How Sponsoring a Family Works:
STEP ONE: You will first select an ASC Child or Family to sponsor by the States SOS Christmas tab below of your choice. We will have families with one child and families with up to 5 children and more available for sponsorship.
STEP TWO: You will purchase gifts for each child. Our goal is for each child to receive 3-5 gifts with an overall value of $100 or more per child, these children are worth it, consider this your Give Back! We have compiled a list of suggested gift items for various age groups, which you may view here.
Many families have provided a “wish list” for each child. YOU MUST USE THIS LIST, when provided.
STEP THREE (optional): We encourage you to include a personal note to the recipient family, and if desired, you may include your contact information. Many times, the recipient family wishes to send a note of thanks back to the sponsoring family, and this will allow them to do so.
STEP FOUR: Please bring all presents, wrapped, and tagged with the children’s name and family number on the outside of every gift. Once you select your children, you will receive an email with instruction for the drop off date, location, and time within your area.
You will also need to bring the sponsor sheet, which will be emailed to you upon confirmation of your sponsorship.
This is a list of what was purchased by you for each child and the approximate dollar amount spent on each item. If a group of people are shopping for a family, all presents must be delivered at the same time to ensure none of the gifts are mixed up.
