Making 50 minority veteran families’ wishes come true!
It's the end of the year and with the rising cost of goods, inflation, and a years’ long pandemic, we know winter has been tough. Join Minority Vets for our 3rd annual Winter Wish Project️ We're spreading some winter joy to members of our community by fulfilling the wishes of minority veteran families.
What does that mean? We're looking for minority veterans who could use a little extra support this winter to provide for them and their families. If selected, we'll ask you to create an Amazon wishlist with up to $200 in items that we'll order for you and your family. Priority will be given to new applicants this winter but past Winter Wish Project recipients are welcome and encouraged to apply. King County members are eligible to create wishlists with up to $250.
The priority deadline to register for the Winter Wish Project is December 10, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. EST. All applications received after will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all spots on the Wish List have been filled. After the application has closed, we'll review and send notifications of selection and you will have 48 hours to complete your wishlists.

Help us spread the love - sponsor a family for Winter Wish Project
Since 2020, Minority Vets has been delivering the Winter Wish Project to our members by the generous support of our community and partners like VA Claims Insider who has sponsored more than half of our participants each year. This is truly a community led effort and we need your support to continue it. Consider sponsoring a Winter Wish Project family, for each $200 donated we can adopt one additional family.
From the Minority Vets family to yours, we hope you have a happy holidays, if you celebrate, and that all have a safe and healthy winter and new year.
