Del Webb Lakewood Ranch Association of Veterans and Military Supporters

Operation Thanksgiving 2020

As most of you know, our Operation Thanksgiving 2020 was a great success due to the overall generosity of you, our Del Webb community.

This year we were able to provide MacDill AFB Commissary Gift cards for Thanksgiving meals to 200 military families. The Winn-Dixie Gives Foundation was also generous and matched our Gift cards with 200 free turkeys to the same military families. This was achieved in spite of the difficulties of dealing with COVID-19

Thank you for your compassion and kindness. As a group, we are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in a military family's life.

Del Webb Lakewood Ranch Association of Veterans and Military Supporters welcomes you to our website.

As our Del Webb community started to develop in 2017, a small group of residents had the idea to start a group to support our military, their families and our community.

Although we're still growing and developing, we already have a couple of years of meaningful, successful events that have touched many lives. We will continue to grow with our community's support.

Our dedicated group of men and women finds ways to support our active soldiers, their families, and military retirees in need, while ensuring that our community never forgets what our troops do for us.

Please help us to make this resource a tool for all our active members, potential new members, and our Del Webb community by giving us feedback on what you like and what could be improved.

Jerry Hufford, Commander
