Christmas Boxes for Active Military
Adopt A Sox’s (AAS) mission is to recognize and thank our actively serving Montana service men and women at Christmas, to show them that their own communities think of them and appreciate their sacrifices. To do this, we invite the community to donate a wide range of specific useful items, tasty treats, and fun distractions.
In 2018, we shipped 234 boxes to deployed troops and handed out 130 "stockings" to local active duty military. We have received many nice notes from recipients who expressed their thanks to everyone involved.
Remember that this is a community effort — showing our military how much we appreciate their sacrifice. Thank you for your support!
How We Got Our Name
When the organization was formed, many Montanans were serving our country and the community wanted to support them. The Adopt A Sox mission is to recognize and thank Montana military personnel stationed overseas during the Christmas holidays. The local effort to reach out and support those individuals enabled us to "adopt" a Montanan and, since the boxes are Christmas gifts, it has to include a Christmas stocking, or "sox". This resulted in Adopt A Sox!
