The Together We Stand Foundation is once again delivering some holiday cheer for families of members who are deployed in operational theatre outside of North America, separated from their family and not on training between 1 December 2019 and 30 January 2020.
The Together We Stand Foundation is a registered Canadian charity that was created to honour the sacrifices deployed military personnel and their families make each day. This year the foundation will be giving each family experiencing an overseas deployment one Family Gift Box that will include gift cards and coupons from companies such as Adidas, Brass & Unity, Fabricland, Reebok, Yogen Früz, prepaid Visas, and so much more! The estimated value of each Family Gift Box is $300! The Together We Stand Foundation will send the gift box directly to the address designated by the member before the holidays.
Who is eligible?
Members who will be deployed between December 1, 2019 and January 30, 2020 in operational theatre outside of North America and who will be separated from their family during the holiday season will be eligible. Those on training will not be eligible.
To receive your gift box, a gift form must be completed. The gift form can be found at: https://www.twsfoundation.ca/en/ and must be completed in its entirety, including a copy of the member’s Canadian Forces Task Plans and Operations (CFTPO) Task Authority. Members receive the CFTPO upon deployment notice. Members and immediate family members are able to apply, provided all information is completed on the form.
The deadline to apply for the gift box is November 8, 2019.
