Please consider this a confirmation that we've received your information and will be in touch. We are taking November 21st-23rd off (from volunteering) to be with our own military families for Thanksgiving.
In the meantime, see below for some information that may help.
Toys for our families and Christmas parties should be mailed or dropped to us no later than December 15th. Most unit Christmas parties are occurring December 6th-15th before units cut out on Christmas leave.
However, we will take toys right up to Christmas eve for families who step forward later in the season. No toys will go to waste.. we have camp JOY in February for any extra toys to be put to good use.
The children we serve are ages newborn- 18 years old.
