Adopt A Family for the Holidays

Family Readiness Officers from military bases in North and South Carolina in November, send a list of military families in need. Patriot Military Family Foundation in conjunction with Gold Star Mothers, the American Red Cross and NC National Guard are charged with overseeing the adoption of these families by our communities. The families are generally in the enlisted ranks and E-5’s and below. This program also includes local veteran and Gold Star families who do not have the income to support extra expenditures associated with the holiday season. In 2020 we were able to help 59 families, representing over 150 family members. Adopting a family is easy, and can be done individually or by your workplace, favorite club, church, or civic organization.

If you would like to participate and ensure that our American Military and Veterans enjoy Christmas, please contact Rick Cantwell at or at (704) 401-2066.

Your gifts and donations must be delivered to the Patriot Military Family Foundation Headquarters at 129 Fast Lane, Mooresville, NC by December 12, 2021.

If you are short on time but want to help, you can donate now.
