Thanksgiving 2018

November 20th, 2018

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all that we hold dear.

At the Gary Sinise Foundation, we are deeply grateful for our nation's defenders, veterans, first responders and their families who sacrifice alongside them. Thanks to these American heroes, we can enjoy our freedom and way of life to celebrate on this day.

We are thankful for you—our generous donors, dedicated team, and passionate supporters. Because of your generosity, together we've made a remarkable impact in the lives of so many of our defenders and their loved ones.

On this day, let's celebrate our service members that protect us around the world, and our first responders that keep us safe at home. Our nation’s defenders rush into harm’s way without hesitation and ask for nothing in return. They protect us, support us, and remain steadfast through good times and bad.

As we break bread with those we hold dear on Thanksgiving, we hope you know how grateful we are for your dedication to the Gary Sinise Foundation. Thank you for helping us always do a little more to serve and honor our nation's heroes.

“The Foundation reached out and helped me with food, rent, and diapers for my little man. Please, if you are struggling, reach out to the Foundation they will help you. God bless everyone that helped.”

— Calvin, Relief and Resiliency recipient

Here's wishing you and yours a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
