Operation Christmas Blessing
The 2nd Annual Operation Christmas Blessing was a success!
Thanks to the generous collaboration of a host of partners and individual community sponsors, we were able to provide personalized gifts, food boxes, stocking stuffers, and school supplies to over 30 veteran families in need.
At the walk-through event held Saturday, December 18th at Elks Lodge #858 in Greenville, veteran families received a warm welcome from volunteers in holiday costumes. They picked up their wrapped gifts provided by community sponsors, as well as stocking stuffers and school supplies donated by the SC National Guard and Reserves. In addition to hosting the event, the Elks Lodge also provided Christmas dinner food boxes. To round out the event, the veteran families enjoyed hot chocolate, live Christmas music performances by the Greenville Fine Arts Center, as well as a photo with Santa!
At Upstate Warrior Solution, it’s our honor to provide support to our warriors and their families throughout the year. We are so grateful for our partners who join us in this effort, especially around the holidays!
A special shoutout to these additional groups who supported the event: Daughters of the American Revolution, TD Bank, Young Republicans of SC, Upstate Veterans Business Network, Crescent Hospice, Higher Ground Hikers, Medals of America, and EuroKera.
