Soldier and Family Reunion
Adopt a Soldier

Adopt a Soldier is a 501(c)(3)  non-profit organization located in Peotone, Illinois. Founded by a military mother in 2012, the vision of supporting military families and their enlisted loved one, has evolved into an organization that covers so much more. In April 2016, it became apparent with the growth of AAS, that the need for an organization like Adopt a Soldier was essential, thus we established a 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

Supporting the pillars of Americas’ Freedom:

Our Troops, Veterans & Military Families.

Our Mission

Supporting our Military is so much more than care packages and homecomings!

Adopt a Soldier will embrace the difficult issues facing the  pillars of America's Freedom: Our Military, Veterans, & Military Families. We will celebrate the accomplishments and joy, while being ever present in the darkness, shedding light, becoming the advocate for change. Support doesn’t end with service… it carries on into the civilian world.

Our Vision
Our Funding

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which does not receive any state or government funding. Our organization is run solely on donations from the kind and generous people who care about those who fought for our freedoms. Adopt a Soldier is made up entirely of dedicated volunteers. This allows all donations to directly benefit our Heroes! Our budget is based on what AAS calls the 3 main pillars of America’s Freedom -The Soldier, The Veteran and The Military Family.  Embracing all three entities with care packages, postage, Veteran’s-assistance, food, clothing, gas, car repairs, utilities and rent are a few ways your donations aid AAS in our missions.
