Walk-in registration is also available while toy supplies last. The Holiday Toy Giveaway will take place during the Holiday Jingle Mingle (pictures with Santa, Ice Skating and more) on

December 15, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Fort MacArthur. Active duty and civilian military connected children are welcome.

This is the time of season we can all look back and reflect on our many blessing. We appreciate what we have instead of obsessing over what we lack. Each day provides a new opportunity to give. The holiday season can be a lonely time for a student who is away in college for the first time, so remember to include others in your thanksgiving affairs. William Arthur Ward wrote “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
