    You have all been so generous. The need for meals continues. The holidays are fast approaching, and many military families would like to plan festive holiday gatherings. But when a spouse is deployed and far from home … when paying the rent every month is a struggle … when purchasing even a simple dinner for your family might require real tradeoffs, celebrating the holidays may seem impossible for many military families.
