PROJECT GIVING: THANKSGIVING MEALS Last week, SDIA Teams and Chapters throughout the US worked tirelessly to bless more than 70 Sheep Dog families through our Project Giving: Thanksgiving Meals program. This holiday program provides a complete traditional Thanksgiving dinner to military and first responder families in need. Thank you to everyone who donated financially or materially to help give these Sheep Dog families a happy Thanksgiving. Our Arkansas River Valley Team and Northwest Arkansas Chapter were blessed to provide Thanksgiving meals for 64 families. To view more photos, visit our Facebook Album. The Eastern TN Team delivered 56 pies to Johnson City and Bristol fire & EMS stations. Team members also served food to those in need at the Family Resource Center at Oak Ridge Schools. The Central AR Chapter spent their third Thanksgiving morning at the VA hospital in Ft. Roots. Members delivered trays to patient's rooms and worked the chow line serving the Thanksgiving...
As became evident during September 11th, 2001, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, our federal & local governments and relief organizations are not always equipped or prepared for such unexpected and widespread devastation.

Instead, its strength lies in small, localized, independent chapters made up of those already trained and ready to help: your community’s current and former military, emergency and law enforcement personnel.
<style=”text-left: center;”>Christmas Outreach is our annual program to adopt the children of any military, law enforcement, fire & rescue or EMS family that needs assistance during the holiday season. Our goal this year is to build on previous years’ successes by providing 70 children with Christmas toys and clothing.
Our greatest need is identifying Sheep Dog families with children that need our assistance. If you know of a worthy Sheep Dog family, please contact us as soon as possible. Each child adopted will receive three toys from their “Santa wish list”, clothing, shoes and other miscellaneous items to brighten the child’s Christmas!
Project Giving is our annual Thanksgiving program to provide meals to military, law enforcement, fire & rescue or EMS families needing assistance during the holiday season.

Our greatest challenge is identifying Sheep Dog families that need our assistance. If you know of a worthy Sheep Dog family, please contact us as soon as possible. Families will receive a whole Turkey, Ham and all the trimmings, including 2 pies, corn, green beans, stuffing, potatoes, and much more!
