Operation Home front would like the OFRW to assist in making Christmas brighter for military families by donating toys for their sons and daughters. Keep in mind when shopping that these children are toddlers to teenagers, and please do not wrap your gift. For many military families Christmas is financially and emotionally stressful. Please be mindful that our toys will put a happy face on some child’s face, whose mom or dad is serving us proudly.
