Holiday Support for Military Families

Operation Holiday Joy was initially established in collaboration with Woman’s Day Magazine and their readers to raise awareness and funds for military service members and their families during the holidays.

Since 2004, Operation Holiday Joy supporters have donated more than $1.3 million to make the holidays brighter for military members and their families. Your generosity has allowed us to purchase and distribute more than 320,000 toys as well as deliver over 25,000 baskets of food for Thanksgiving and Christmas to junior enlisted families in need.

The Armed Services YMCA, in partnership with SAMC, want to bring a little Holiday Joy this Thanksgiving by giving away turkeys and other thanksgiving meal items!
Meal distribution will be Friday November 18th between 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the ASYMCA. We are located across the street from the PX at 13900 Replacement Ave. (One registration per family). Registration is required online, and there is no-cost with this registration or holiday food giveaway. Military ID must be presented to pick up your turkey and meal items. Registrations on behalf of another family are not permitted, and the family who registers must be the one to pick up your items. Register Now.

Give the Gift of Holiday Joy

We help as many junior enlisted families as possible, but many more will go without. Help us make the holidays brighter for more military families.
