As we near the holiday season, Foundation for Women Warriors is calling on the San Diego community to help them support local veteran families through their third annual holiday drive. From now till December 15th, 2022, they will collect new and unused children’s toys, clothes, and baby items for women veterans and their families. This year, Foundation for Women Warriors is aiming to provide holiday help to 100 veteran families.
The community can support the holiday drive through the following:
- Purchase items off of the Foundation for Women Warriors Holiday Amazon Wishlist
- Host a corporate/employee drive and collect new children’s toys, clothes, and baby items
- Make a monetary contribution HERE
- Volunteer to pack gifts and help with the gift distribution
Jodie Grenier, CEO of Foundation for Women Warriors, shares, “The past few years have had a disproportionate financial impact on women across the country and especially in our women veteran community here in California. As we continue to provide emergency financial and childcare assistance, our holiday drive ensures our veteran families facing financial challenges don’t miss out on the joy of the holiday season.”
Foundation for Women Warriors’ mission is to serve women veterans and their children so that their next mission is clear and continues to impact the world. FFWW is the only organization in California solely focused on serving women veterans and their families. Their programs enhance the personal and economic wellbeing of women veterans and address the growing needs of the increasing population of military women transitioning to civilian life.
