2019 Christmas Program

Thank you for your interest in helping the Desert Veterans of Wisconsin spread some Christmas cheer! If you’re a veteran, or here on behalf of a veteran, who needs a little help making Christmas magical this year, welcome! Please see the Recipients section below for more information. If you’re a volunteer who would like to be involved, please see the Volunteers section. 



Recipients are selected based on veteran status and our ability to match the family’s needs with a volunteer group. Veterans are not required to belong to Desert Veterans of Wisconsin, nor are there limitations on the type of service. To participate in the Christmas Program, please fill out the Recipient Request form attached at the bottom of the page and submit it to All recipient information will be kept strictly confidential, with only the program coordinators able to see personal information. Volunteers will receive information such as ages, sizes, and preferences to help facilitate shopping.  



Thank you for your interest in helping veteran families! We couldn’t make this time of year so special without your help. There are several ways to help as a volunteer, the most impactful of which is to sign up to adopt a family. We match volunteer adopters with families based on the family size and budget you specify on the Volunteer form; you may adopt a whole family or be matched with few recipients from a family, with the others going to another volunteer. If you’re adopting a family as a group, please designate one person as primary contact, and if you already have a family selected, please have them fill out the Recipient request form. 


Please see the Volunteer form linked below for additional ways to help! Whatever way you choose to contribute, know that it will be appreciated more than you will know, and will help keep this time of year joyful for our military families.


There is also a Donate button on the right side of the page. If you prefer to help financially, please use that button, or submit a check to the address on the Volunteer form. These donations will be used to complete family gift requests or provide our adopted families with additive items like grocery gift cards. 


For additional information or any questions, please contact Dani Voss or Mark Bonovetz at, or Dani at (262) 389-2277.
