HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Nothing can replace the sense of being with loved ones during the holidays, but receiving a stuffed holiday stocking will help to brighten the spirits of deployed service members and veterans. Donated stockings will be shipped to service members deployed to combat zones, veteran patients in VA Hospitals across the country, and, this year, the stockings will also be shared with the frontline workers supporting COVID-19 operations, including National Guard and Reserves Units, as well as VA Healthcare Workers.
