The 2016 Holiday Season is Upon Us – and We Need YOUR Help!

The 2016 Holiday Season is Upon Us – and We Need YOUR Help!

The holiday season is upon us once again. Most Americans live well enough to enjoy the holidays, but for many of our nation's Veterans and First Responders (Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, and EMS professionals), that is not the case. These courageous men and women put their lives on the line for us each and every day, giving us the gift of protection and security. It's time for us to give them and their children the gift of happy holidays. Over the next couple of months, SDIA Teams and Chapters throughout the US will be working hard to raise money and secure donations for our two Holiday Programs benefiting Sheep Dog families in need.

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.

Thanksgiving Outreach

Thanksgiving Outreach Our annual Thanksgiving program provides meals for military, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and/or EMS families needing assistance during the holiday season. Families receive a whole turkey, ham, vegetables, rolls, and all the trimmings, including pie! Our greatest need is identifying Sheep Dog families that need our assistance. If you know of a worthy Sheep Dog family, please ask them to complete and submit the application below. The family will then be contacted by SDIA Leadership to verify and confirm the information provided; further instructions will also be given. If you are interested in sponsoring/adopting a Sheep Dog family for Thanksgiving, a $60 donation will provide a family with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We also accept product donations in lieu of cash donations. Please contact KRicker@SheepDogIA.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your contributions to give our heroes a happy Thanksgiving!
