Give Something that Means Something – Support Our Military

Holiday Giving

Give something that means something this holiday season and help the American Red Cross bring hope to people in need, especially members of the military and their families, as well as our country’s veterans.

Please support the American Red Cross 2017 Holiday Giving Campaign and give a gift of support, strength and hope to someone who needs it while honoring someone in your life.

Honor friends and family with a unique gift. Your donation is a tax-deductible contribution to the Red Cross. Simply choose unique gifts in honor of the people on your list; send them a free holiday greeting or e-card to announce your gift and know your donation will help people when they need it most.


During this holiday season you can help support members of the U.S. military, their families and veterans through our Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) program. The Red Cross has been helping members of our country’s armed forces, our veterans and civilians for more than a century. Today the Red Cross provides more than 369,000 services to members of the military and veterans every year.

Here’s just a sampling of the gifts you can give this holiday season:

  • You can help deliver urgent messages to service members who may need to get home during a family crisis.
  • Your gift can help provide hospital kits so our volunteers can welcome service members and veterans at medical facilities with kits filled with toiletries and other essentials to make them feel at home.
  • Support Red Cross therapy support programs for service members and veterans who are ill and injured.
  • Support SAF Reconnection Workshops that help service members and veterans adjust to their home and community when they return from being deployed.
  • Give something that means something during this holiday season. Help the Red Cross support those in need here at home and around the globe.
