Task Force Kringle

ATTENTION:
2021 Applications are open!

In 2018, 22 Until None instituted their Christmas program for veteran families in need. That year, with help from some sponsors, we helped 11 families. In 2019 it grew to 18 families. For 2020 we helped 31 families. Application period opens Oct 1 every year and ends on Oct 31. Recipients are notified by Nov 1, so gifts will arrive by Christmas. Each family has up to $1000 to spend on Amazon for gifts, including shipping and tax.

*If you are a recipient, you forfeit any future eligibility for this program. It also counts as a form of assistance. Past recipients are not eligible.

Applications must be submitted by the veteran themselves, with the veteran's contact info. Due to attempted fraud by ex spouses, we will not accept applications submitted with spouse's contact information. Before applying make sure you have your proof of financial hardship! You only get one chance to apply and will not be contacted until Oct 31.
