Operation Christmas Joy

While the Christmas season is considered by most of us to be The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, for the families of our Colorado National Guard members it can be difficult. Especially when that loved one is deployed overseas and those at home are left with very tight budgets during the holidays. The stress of being without  loved one is challenge enough, providing gifts for your children during Christmas shouldn't be. That’s why Operation Christmas Joy is so important. 100% of the items we collect for children and adults is distributed by the Colorado National Guard at their annual Secret Santa Shoppe. I have had the pleasure of being at the Shoppe and seeing the relief it brings parents who know their kids will have a happy Christmas morning. Over the years we have helped hundreds of Colorado families and we need your help again this year. Give your holiday a wonderful feeling this year by sharing your treasure with families right here at home. THANKS!!! -Rick

There’s no doubt that this Christmas season Santa is going to need a little extra help taking care of all of the good boys and girls, and their parents. And this is especially true for the Men and Women in uniform deployed during the holiday season.

  • Operation Christmas Joy offers help to our troops and their families with a gift drive from November to early December. Donations will be for toys for the children of our troops to make sure that they have something special under the tree.
  • This year we’re asking for donations of books, games, toys, and clothes for young people and kitchen/bath accessories for Mom and tools and gadgets for Dad.
