[ARCHIVED] Send Aurorans in the Military Gifts from Home

Gifts from Home

The City of Aurora's annual Gifts from Home program offers our hardworking active members of the military a reminder from their hometown during the holidays.


Gifts from Home thanks Aurora residents who are actively serving in the military - at home or abroad - with a gift box that includes mixed nuts, Aurora memorabilia and a card during the holiday season.

"As a young soldier, receiving mail from home was heartwarming," said Mayor Richard C. Irvin, a veteran of the US Army who served in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. "Something like this from the City would have inspired me to work even harder."

  • Active military member's name and rank
  • Complete military address
  • Branch of service and current station
  • Home address in Aurora

To ensure timely deliver for the holidays, the deadline to submit information is Friday, November 16, 2018.
