FILL THE FOOTLOCKER

Join us in our mission and help show our

  • active-duty U.S. Armed Forces members and military working dogs, stationed around the world;

  • our low-income active-duty military and Veteran's families;

  • and our homeless Veterans;

that their country cares about them and their well-being.

 

By donating today, you can be a part of a team that is dedicated to providing these men, women, children, and even military dogs, with items that will make a huge difference in their mental, physical, or financial well-being. 

 

Our "Fill The Footlocker" program consists of three sub-programs:

  1. Military Care Packages: supports active-duty service members and military working dogs serving in combat zones and foreign posts.

  2. Homeless Veterans Stand-down Kits: supports our ever-rising number of homeless Veterans.

  3. Operation Rescue Christmas: supports low-income military and Veteran families during the holiday season.​

Working within the community, MMIA collects items for all programs. Once items are collected, the items are prepared for shipment overseas. Items collected for homeless Veterans are distributed at the numerous homeless Veteran stand-downs held within the state. 

 

Financial donations are greatly appreciated to help offset the cost of shipping for Care Packages.

 

Toys, gift cards and monetary donations are collected from November 1st to December 15th for low-income Veteran and active-duty military families for the holidays.
