JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) During the holiday season, more than 1,000 local families will celebrate away from a loved one, who is serving in the military overseas.

As a thank, you for their sacrifice, Jacksonville McDonald’s restaurants are partnering with the Support Military Spouses initiative to hand out gifts to the military moms, dads, and their children.

Gifts were given out on Wednesday at the Jacksonville Commons Gym.

This is the tenth year the organization is able to give back to military spouses.

Over 700 families from Jacksonville received McDonald’s, gift bags and family fun.

SUPPORT MILITARY SPOUSES BACKGROUND

Support Military Spouses (SMS) is a Christian non-profit organization that exists to help military spouses as they seek employment, manage finances, shoulder the responsibility of family life, care for wounded warriors, and honor the memory of our nation’s fallen heroes. We do this with the help of patriotic volunteers and through programs that educate, appreciate and reaffirm the sacrifice, patriotism, and selflessness of all military spouses.
