Heroes at Home Program Tomorrow!

Heroes at Home Program

For the fourth year, Sears will be sponsoring its Heroes at Home registry for military families.  So far, the program has raised more than 23 million dollars and helped over 62,000 families!

In order to help families enjoy the gift card donations during the holiday season, registration for this program will be earlier than ever – on August 31 between 1 and 3 pm CDT.  It’s a short period of time to get your name on the list, and the site will be jumping!

In addition, from September 4 through November 19, the site will be taking donations to help meet the holiday wishes of military families.


About the Author


airforcewife started her military journey as an Army National Guard wife, but upon experiencing base housing decided to aim high and made the switch to the Air Force. That's worked pretty well for Air Force Family so far, even though airforcewife holds the spouse world record for Come to Jesus talks with various members of the command.

Air Force Family has four children, two pit bulls, and a Mother-in-Law who lost her mind eight years ago. Despite the reputation of pit bulls, airforcewife would like to assure you that her Mother-in-Law is truly the most dangerous of the group, and is banned in more places than the dogs.

airforcewife gets through Air Force Guy's frequent deployments and TDY's by frequently attending her boxing gym, after the chance discovery last deployment that hitting things really does make life better. She also volunteers as the Ambassador for Sew Much Comfort to Bethesda National Naval Medical Center and in a variety of other causes throughout the year.

airforcewife has no idea what the future holds, but decided five years ago that she wants to be Andi when she grows up.

    wow! If I was a civilian thinking of donating and saw a post like this, I would give my money elsewhere. We are very fortunate that there are programs like this for us and should be thankful and not expecting things.
