Monetary donations are crucial to this project, as they allow HOP to provide holiday meals to more families during Thanksgiving and Christmas and they empower families to choose personalized gifts for their loved ones during Christmas.  To get involved this holiday season, contact us.

Project History

Every year before Thanksgiving and Christmas, our volunteer delivery drivers gather up boxes of food and supplies from Fresh Mart and bring those groceries right to the doors of families in need. At the Thanksgiving delivery, each family receives a gift card to Walmart, the amount relative their family size, with the hope that it will allow them to buy meaningful Christmas gifts for their loved ones.

The program has been a huge success in making the holidays much brighter for these veterans and their families. As one volunteer describes, “The veteran greeted us with hugs and signs of tears in his eyes. He was awed by the generosity of the Human Outreach Project. He said that this Thanksgiving ‘miracle’ could not have happened at a better time.”

Future Goals

The Veteran Outreach Project served 25 Veterans and their families in 2017 and we hope to increase our outreach next year!
