Our first real interaction with Freedom Alliance was a phone call from a lovely woman congratulating us for being chosen for the Presents for Patriots program. She told me how cute our children were and we chatted for a bit--I was connecting with a real human who had an interest in our lives and needs! Then we were able to choose specific Christmas gifts for our kids (even more than we ever expected!). We were also added to a Facebook group where we were able to connect with other wounded veteran families (which is SO important and beneficial), played fun games leading up to Christmas, and had the opportunity to win prizes. Freedom Alliance sent us a Christmas ornament and handwritten cards from grateful citizens all across our nation. The notes is the cards were absolutely touching. After Christmas, we submitted photos for a contest with AMAZING prizes. Providing gifts for families in need at Christmastime is enough of a gift...but to continue to give tangible gifts leading up to and after Christmas was even more exciting...and just as precious is the gift of recognition and appreciation. Plus, we are now connected with a whole group of people who know exactly where we've been and what we deal with and that will truly be the gift that keeps on giving. I've never heard of Freedom Alliance before, but I will be sure to share about them with others now!
Absolutely amazing organization that helped our family have an incredible Christmas when we otherwise wouldn't have been able to have one! The organization & its donors truly showed us the Christmas spirit!! Thank you simply is not enough!
Freedom Alliance came at the right time. We were struggling keeping up with our year and they were able to help aliviate some of the stress of not only the holiday blues but also were there with us through our struggles. I could not be any more thankful for them. They knew how to offer me the support that, as my husband's caregiver, I needed. We are forever thankful for them, not only today or tomorrow but for the rest of our lives. Thank you Freedom Alliance for everything you do for not only our family but also other Veteran Families!!
I can’t express how thankful I am with the assistance I’ve received from Freedom Alliance.
From the community outreach, wounded warrior events, and the holiday events held.
My family has been blessed to have been enclosed in several of these events. Moreover, it’s what I’ve witnessed. I’ve seen how this group has directly impacted military families in need.
It’s wonderful to know that there’s a genuine care and concern for our servicemen , servicewomen, and their families.
Freedom Alliance was an absolute God send. It took what was normally a terrible holiday and made it into one we can learn to enjoy again.
After being medically retired from the Marine Corps we have struggled to make ends meet during the holidays and adding that on top of an already rough time of year due to PTS, depression and unwanted memories, we have always had a terrible time. Presents for Patriots helped to take our focus off of the negative aspects and helped us loom at the good and positive ones. Our sponsors made it so we did not have to worry about gifts for my children and showed them that there are people out there that care and are willing to be selfless so that others may benefit.
Freedom Alliance has been nothing except amazing to work with. They pulled off what feels like a miracle to us this Christmas. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your care and support Freedom Alliance!
We were blessed to be helped and acknowledge by you. We couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support from you guys. You guys made our year and we are great full for what you have done.
This organization has been a blessing to our family. We are extremely pleased with all that they have done for my wounded-in-combat soldier and family. Everyone is very thoughtful, kind and friendly. We love how they make us feel more like family!
I am so thankful for Freedom Alliance! They are caring, fun, and very passionate about what they do for veterans and their families. My husband is a combat wounded veteran. This was our first Christmas after he was medically retired. Money has been tight as we are readjusting to our new lives. The struggles that my husband has gone through both mentally and physically has been challenging to say the least. It is hard to watch the one you love suffer and not be able to do anything to take the pain and demons away. With the whirlwind of changes my husband and I did not think we would have much under the tree this year. It broke my heart to think that my six year old daughter would wake up Christmas morning and the one thing she asked Santa for would not be there. Christmas has always been special for me and I always try to make it a magical time for our daughter. This year, Freedom Alliance helped keep the magic of Christmas alive! The look on our little girl’s face when she saw her presents is a memory I will cherish forever! Thank you, Freedom Alliance, and their sponsors for your help, generosity, and caring heart. Most of all thank you for caring about my family. You help to remind us that we are not alone. Merry Christmas!

What can I say besides AMAZING!!!! This is an organization who goes above and beyond for military families. I was not in a position to truly “participate” in Christmas. This organization truly blessed my family. I’m not trying to sound superficial cause I am far from that but this organization really gifts to the families. There were no dollar store items this organization just really supports the families. There were games and prizes throughout the whole season. Just a fantastic organization that you should support and reach out to if your family is in need during the holidays. Thank you Freedom Alliance!!!
Freedom Alliance is amazing. They and the donors made our Christmas amazing. Our children had to have some scary surgeries this year and we were dreading what to do for Christmas. But Freedom Alliance saved the day by pairing us with an amazing donor. I can't thank them enough.. in all honesty just saying "Thank you" isn't enough. Thank you for having an amazing heart, and acting so amazing for our Nations Heroes.. hopefully that is makes you know just how special all the donors and the kind hearts at Freedom Alliance are.
Freedom Alliance is such an amazing organization they brought the true meaning of Christmas to life and renewed the Christmas spirit for our entire family with their gift of Love and support they showed for our family during a season of chaos.
Amazing organization who truly cares about our nations Military and Veterans. Supporting those who served. Thanks for everything you do!
This company and its sponsors have blessed our family with a beautiful Christmas! My husband and I are appreciative for everything they have done for us!
Freedom alliance is an amazing organization that goes over to help veterans in need. Their Christmas program has helped thousands of veterans. I’m blessed to part of their “family”
I am 100% service connected through the VA and Military, I am an OEF and OIF veteran. I am a single mother of 2 and recently unexpectedly had to gain custody of my sisters children, now i have a total of 7 children . Every day is a struggle mentally, physically just in general. This holiday season was going to be horrible, absolutely nothing to look fwd too at all. I had no clue what to do, not even being able to afford extras like a tree, lights, decorations certainly not presents. This program has taken 300 pounds of weight off my back. The lady Jenna that has contacted me and worked with me through this has been so kind. I am usually a closed in person, but she has made it easy to talk. I was extremely embarrassed too have to reach out for help but with her personality and the way she communicated with me ,I never felt judged or less of a person. I can not thank her, the program or any of the ladies working together too make this possible for families enough. I can't wait to see the kids faces on Christmas morning. This is the first time I haven't felt alone in a very long time. Thank you !!
When you think of a nonprofit organization; the first thing that comes to mind is kindness!! Thats how I can describe Freedome Alliance.. So, I would like to share a snippet of the life our family lives currently. My husband lives with chronic nerve damage, combat ptsd, and debilitating pain.. We were given an application to Freedom Alliance with no preconceived ideas of what this amazing nonprofit organization did. So we filled it out and later found out that we were accepted in the program where donors provide families a christmas to take the financial burden and pressure off of the parents to give our children some joy, when with all due respect feel the same pain as both my husband and I feel each day. This organization has been nothing but laughing, kindness, joy, fun, new relationships, and just pure happiness knowing that we are now apart of a community of families and DONORS that just want to give pure joy to one another!! I can not even explain what it has been like during this short time to get to know the admins and families and to feel like we have know each other for so long,,, but when dealing with so much pain and hurt you realize that knowing that others know what you are going through just helps make transitioning from military life to civilian life a littler easier, and knowing there is support is so amazing.. Freedom Alliance has been incredible.. Kindness is the word i use when i describe the feeling associated with this nonprofit organization!! I can not thank all those behind the scenes that do this in silence to know how incredible you individuals are and the heart you have to help all of us.. it never goes unnoticed and the amount of gratitude i have is beyond words.. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! We are so lucky to Alicia in our life and Freedom Alliance, and ALL YOU WONDERFUL SILENT ANGELS!! YOU ARE PEACE IN OUR HEART WE DO NOT FEEL OFTEN!!
After a year of despair the holiday season was looming. My disabled veteran was inpatient at a facility 2.5 hours away fighting the ptsd that almost ended his life. My three very young children looked at the prospect of a holiday together and gifts under the tree. The reality was that hurricane Irma had depleted our savings and the commuting to see Daddy took what else we had. I applied for holiday support through late night tears praying for a call back. Every person I have been in contact with has been incredible. They’re kind and compassionate. Heaven isn’t the only place with Angels. Christmas morning, my girls will wake up to beautifully wrapped packages just for them. The magic remains as each gift is signed from “A Christmas Angel” I can not thank the generous donors for my children’s complete joy. The biggest gift I have is knowing that there’s an amazing organization that supports and helps those who truly need it. Thank you for this incredible gift.
I would just like to share how thankful my family and I are to participate in such a wonderful program. With all the craziness in the world right now, it is nice to take the time to remember there still are caring people out there. Thank you to all of the volunteers out there that are sponsoring not only my family, but others as well. Your deed does not go unseen. I for one, am very appreciative of all of your support. It may seem like just material items, but to some families you have made Christmas happen. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart! Happy holidays to you and thank you for your support to our military members and their families.
What an amazing experience. The hunt was great, but the camaraderie and laughter among new friends Isthe best therapy I’ve ever had. Pepper you run a first class operation.
