Holiday Season…Looking ahead to 2018!


As you plan for 2018, please consider the Colorado National Guard Foundation and our holiday assistance programs as an option to support. We have several different programs that your donation would benefit.


The Colorado National Guard Foundation Thanks YOU for a Wonderful 2017!

35 Families were adopted through the Adopt-a-Family program and received gifts for the holidays. Altogether, 81 children received gifts through Adopt-a-Family.

Our Goal for 2018 is $10,000.00.

Service Members provide us with information on their Family, their kids’ ages and gender, and what their needs and wishes are. We strive to meet all of their needs through our donors and pass along this information to those interested in purchasing items for those specific Family members.

163 National Guard Families received Holiday Meal Assistance in November and December, which assisted 403 children.

Our Goal for 2018 is $20,000.00.

Our goal for the Meal Assistance Program is to support all Families that need a little help ensuring they have a holiday meal on the table. All monetary donations are sent to the CONG Foundation at the Family Program Office and transferred into grocery gift cards.

92 Families attended the Santa Shop, which provided gifts for 230 children.

Our Goal for 2018 is $5,000.00.

Although in 2017 we were not able to provide a Santa Shop event in Colorado Springs, we plan to host this event in 2018. With volunteer assistance and generous toy donations, we will host two Santa Shop events, Denver and Colorado Springs, on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

For Colorado National Guard Families interested in participating in these programs, registration will open on October 1, 2018.

The Colorado National Guard Foundation and the CONG Family Program would like to Thank YOU for your participation in the Santa Shop, Adopt-a-Family program, and Holiday Meal Assistance. These programs would not be possible without you and your organization donating your time, money, and gifts.
