Hear from Executive Director, Angela Salyer

Dear Friends of Comfort Crew for Military Kids,

We hope each of you celebrate this holiday season surrounded by love, laughter, family, and good friends!

We are honored that military families trust and request our resources daily and thanks to your generosity, we are happy to report that in 2023, we have:

  • distributed over 21,000 Comfort Kit resources to help families navigate through deployments, reintegration, injuries, and loss,
  • performed the With You all the Way! Tour to over 3,500 children at schools on and off bases in Texas, Florida, and Virginia,
  • reached 500 users with our new Comfort Crew Academy, and
  • launched the new Comfort Crew app, making our digital content even easier for families to access.

While we are proud of these accomplishments, we recognize that we have been unable to meet every need. Although we continue to fulfill every individual family request, we have over 1,000 requests on our waitlist for bulk orders from military-connected resource professionals. These dedicated individuals serve military kids in their communities and have grown to depend on our resources to support those efforts.

We love hearing from military families who have received our Comfort Kits. A military spouse wrote, “This small box made a big impact on our family. She feels loved and at peace when she didn’t before.Thank you for all you do and thank you for supporting our military and their families. It takes a village.”

We appreciate your past gifts and need your help to support these families this holiday season! For every dollar donated, 89 cents goes directly to Comfort Crew programs. Please consider mailing your check to CCMK, 8127 Mesa Dr., Austin, TX 78759 or making your donation online at www.comfortcrew.org

Happiest of holidays to you and your family from all of us at the Comfort Crew!

With You All the Way! Tour in San Antonio

August 29, 2022

We are thrilled to highlight our With You All The Way! Tour kicked off the 2022 season in San Antonio from April 21st- 25th. Thanks to H-E-B Operation Appreciation’s generosity and support for military kids, we performed eight assemblies and spoke to one thousand K-5 children. During the tour and after his presentations, our Co-Founder Trevor Romain was able to chat with kids one-on-one. Many of the kids he spoke to shared some of their struggles, and pride, in being a military kid. “Some of these kids are really having a tough time,” said Trevor, “They have to move a lot, leave family and friends behind and deal with having a parent deployed, often all at the same time. I am so glad we are able to give the kids tips, tricks and proven resiliency tools to help them not only survive but thrive.”

⛳ Boots and Birdies Charity Classic 2020

August 13, 2020

We are happy to announce our 9th annual fundraising event, the Boots & Birdies Charity Classic (BBCC), but want to be transparent about possible changes to expect.  The tournament is scheduled for Thursday, October 29th, 2020 at Falconhead Golf Club. Social distancing safeguards will be met as we tee off at noon. Depending on regulations at that time, we may be required to change our usual shotgun start scheduled for noon to different tee times for each group. This is how golf tournaments meet current regulations of gatherings of 10 or more people. Two players are allowed per cart and the beverage carts are a go!  We love to party with you but might be required to offer the auction and live entertainment virtually. If so, we promise to still make it a great event.  For updates, we invite you to check our website at Boots and Birdies 2020. We will follow up when we open […]

Comfort Kit Update We hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We are sending our best wishes and love your way!  At this time, we continue to take Comfort Kit requests online to support military families dealing with deployments, reintegration, injuries, and loss. The warehouse is operating on a limited scale, but will continue to ship kits to individual families on a first come, first served basis. We will update you if anything changes.  We want to remind you that we have made some of our resources available online.
