Thanksgiving Adopt a Soldier Program



The Association of United States Army (AUSA) and Fort Bliss are again partnering to ask

the City of El Paso residents to open their door to Soldiers for Thanksgiving. 


As an AUSA Corporate member we are asking you to recruit your employees that would be

willing to host a Solider for Thanksgiving.  As you know each year there are Fort Bliss Soldiers

who cannot make it home for Thanksgiving for a variety of reasons.

Many times these Soldiers have to spend this holiday by themselves. 

While many have made this sacrifice while deployed we don’t want any to be in El Paso and be alone.



We are expecting a strong response from Fort Bliss Soldiers to have the opportunity to experience Thanksgiving in a warn El Paso home.  

Because of this we are looking to recruit as many homes as possible so we can ensure all who want to spend Thanksgiving with a family have the opportunity.


So here is what we need. Recruit your employees to accept a family.  Let us know by 15 November 2014 the number of Soldiers your company will support.  We will need to know the name of the employee and their address and phone number so we can partner Soldiers and Families together.
