Military members and their families across Arizona, ready to serve and help without hesitation. When they are the ones in need, however, the Military Assistance Mission (MAM) is there to offer support.

MAM helps with everything from financial aid to morale support, by making sure military families don't miss major milestones hosting baby showers and holiday events.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MAM launched a new program 'Operation Distance Learning' to make sure Arizona military families have adequate devices for virtual learning. MAM put out the call to the community for help, and received laptops which then made it into the hands of military families in need.

Now, there's another way to help ahead of the holidays. As part of ABC15's Operation Santa Claus, which marks 20 years in 2020, we're raising money for Military Assistance Mission, as well as Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center, Special Olympics Arizona, Chicanos por la Causa (CPLC), and St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, five amazing community charities.
