Local nonprofit invites you to host a Fort Carson soldier for Thanksgiving

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (November 20, 2016) — While the holidays may be a joyous celebration spent with loved ones, some military members have no choice but to spend that time away from those nearest and dearest to them.

A Colorado Springs nonprofit wants to help change that.

If you think you’ll have an extra seat at the table or more than enough food to go around this Thanksgiving, why not host a Fort Carson soldier?

Citizen Soldier Connection is a nonprofit dedicated to providing friendship and support to Fort Carson soldiers and military families.

Soldiers are sent out in twos or you can choose to host a couple or family.

UPDATE (November 21, 2016): Due to overwhelming support, Citizen Soldier Connection is no longer registering host families for Thanksgiving. They will begin accepting registrations for Christmas after Thanksgiving. Learn more here.
