Campaign Details

NEOPAT has donated over $3.2 million dollars local military families in Northeast Ohio and touched over 8,000 families to date. 

There are several ways your donations can assist local military families. If you would like your donation to go to a specific program please indicate that on your message with your donation amount, otherwise we will allocate your dollars based on the highest need. 


Helping Northeast Ohio Military Families

Stock the Pantry Program

Help our local military families by donating to assist us in supporting local pantries that stock household goods and non-perishable food, free to the military families that need it. 

Adopt-A-Military Family

NEOPAT will assist over 80 military families right in our back yard this holiday season by providing food, clothing, winter coats and gloves as well as toys to make the holidays brighter. Donations of cash and gift cards to area retailers are needed to fulfill the varied needs of each family, as well as to provide a holiday meal.

Stuff the Humvee Toy Drive

Join NEOPAT and First & Main Hudson as we Stuff the Humvee with new, unwrapped toys that will go directly to the children of local less fortunate military families this holiday season.  Funds raised will be used to purchase toys as well as wrapping supplies.

Funding Emergency, Medical, Food & Housing Needs

NEOPAT receives requests daily for assistance with everything from home and auto repairs to utility and medical bills for our veteran and active duty families. No donation is too small and every dollar goes a long way towards heating a home for the holidays or providing a bus ticket or Uber ride for medical appointments. 

Additionally, many of our military families simply need help making ends meet.  Providing support via gift cards that can be used for gas, food, baby supplies and household basics such as toiletries and medicine is critical. 

Your donation can make a difference.  Funds are used to purchase gift cards to cover many of these needs from local retailers such as Giant Eagle, Walmart, Acme and Home Depot, as well as local business partners that assist with requests on an as-needed basis.



Wreaths Across America

Every holiday season, we team up with Wreaths Across America to pay our respects to our fallen heroes. An act of kindness like this, shows how we can pay it forward and honor those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Each wreath is $15.

Ongoing Tributes & Remembrances

NEOPAT works with local organizations and families to host and maintain annual tributes and remembrances for Northeast Ohio’s fallen heroes. Funds are directed towards upkeep of memorial sites and hosting annual events such as traveling memorials, flag displays and ceremonies for Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.


Fund Scholarships

NEOPAT Patriotism Scholarship

Each year, we offer scholarships to students who submit a patriotism essay to NEOPAT. This is part of our dedication to promoting patriotism, especially with children who can become inspired to do the same and become recognized by their communities.

Folds of Honor Scholarship

NEOPAT partners with Folds of Honor to carry forth this singular noble mission to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.
