My husband is deployed in Afghanistan and I searched for organizations that would help my family with Christmas gifts for my kids. They miss their daddy and because the economy is so bad I just couldn't afford gifts for Christmas. I heard about this organization through another spouse and contacted them. They were so wonderful! They registered our kids for a Christmas program they do, and a few days before Christmas, we got a big box filled with at least 3 gifts a piece for each child. I was expecting someone's used and unwanted toys, but every toy was new! They also sent a printout of an email from my husband wishing us a Merry Christmas! It was so moving! They didn't take credit for the toys but sent them on his behalf as though he had sent them himself which I thought was extra special. You don't often find people who go the extra mile to make your day without taking some sort of credit for it but the people at this organization not only made my day but went above and beyond what I expected. They were so kind and really made a difference in our lives especially during the holidays which are tough for families who have a loved one deployed and not home. Thanks to this organization and all its volunteers. They were wonderful!
