Holiday Stockings for Heroes!

The holiday season can be especially difficult for deployed service members and veterans in VA hospitals.


Let's come together and send them some holiday cheer.





Nothing can replace the sense of being with loved ones during the holidays, but receiving a stuffed holiday stocking will help to brighten the spirits of deployed service members and veterans. Soliders' Angels Holiday Stockings for Heroes does just that!


NextGen Management has pledged to collect up to 100 stockings this year!


We will begin collecting items for the stocking on November 1st, 2021! If you'd like to donate sooner, please contact Danielle at Danielle@nextgenmanagement.com to arrange.


On Saturday, December 4th, 2021 at noon we will have our stocking stuffing event!
