“My children had been so excited to see what was in the box. To all of our surprise, most of the contents were for me. This was not very common. I wanted to send you this to say ‘Thank You.’ I cannot begin to explain to you how special it made me feel.” ~ Chana, A Military Spouse

Each year hundreds of volunteers assemble thousands of gift packages destined for military spouses at North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia military bases.

Capture23In 2014, more than 300 volunteers assembled 4,500 Shoebox Gifts during eight days of work.  The Shoeboxes Gifts were delivered to spouses at Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson AFB, Camp Lejeune, Norfolk Naval Base, and Joint Base Charleston military bases.

This program is a way to recognize and appreciate the multitude of challenges facing spouses
