    We believe that Texas should be the best place for veterans and their families to live. Our mission is to build the community of veterans by strengthening careers and families.

    Veterans have served their country and been part of the best military in history. Help us maintain that camaraderie by connecting veterans and their families to resources, opportunities, and one another.

    Your involvement is critical to our success and solving this issue. Thank you again for your help.


    Lone Star Veterans Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides military veterans with community building activities that strengthen careers and families.

    According to the Department of Labor 80% of all jobs are placed through personal networks, but 60% of veterans cite a lack of personal and professional networks when they leave the military as a hurdle to their transition. Building the veteran community means creating professional and personal networks of our successful members to advance their careers, as well as those new to the community to find a career and a family to belong to.

    Your support of Lone Star Veterans Association allows us to connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities and other veterans.

    OLSS Survey 2018

    We're proud to host the 10th Annual Operation Lone Star Santa toy drive and Christmas celebration. Please fill out this survey to make request for toys for your children and feel free to share it with others. The only requirement for this toy drive is to be a member of Lone Star Veterans Association and provide proof of service to our staff when you join.

    Anyone can join LSVA for free here 

    Notes:

    • Please fill out the survey completely. Knowing each child's age, gender, and interests will help our volunteers select toys that will have the best chance of making your Christmas a merry one.
    • It's unlikely that your child will receive the exact toys requested. Our volunteers will, however, do our best to match your kids' wishes with the available toys. That said, there won't be any iPads or Playstations. Maybe someday!
    • We will not ship toys. Our focus is the greater Houston community.
    • Only one application per family. We carefully review registrations to ensure that every child has a fair opportunity to enjoy Christmas.
    • Toys must be picked up on December 8th during the designated time. Please bring a photo ID to make it easier for our volunteers to find your gifts. If there is an emergency that prevents you from getting there, please contact Michelle.Cox@lonestarveterans.org as soon as you are able. Unclaimed toys will be donated within a few days so that another family can enjoy them.
    • Operation Lone Star Santa is possible thanks to hundreds of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars in donations. Please be respectful of the time and effort that goes into every bag of gifts.

    If you would like to volunteer, please see the links at the bottom this page, and be sure to RSVP for lunch or dinner.

We also celebrate the season and spirit of giving by sharing a wonderfully catered meal at the Combined Arms center east of downtown.

    All of this is possible thanks to your donations and sponsorships, allowing us to serve these veteran families at no cost. See the video slideshows for highlights from the last two years:

    More details will be forthcoming, including volunteer signups, how to register to receive gifts, and corporate sponsorship information. We look forward to seeing you and continuing this tradition of sharing and friendship!
