The Holiday Helper Association would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers and supporters who make this endeavor possible. Providing assistance to our military during the holiday season or during critical times is the least we can do for those who sacrifice so much.
The Holiday Helper Association ensures that
"NO MILITARY CHILD
Making a donation to support our military members and their families during the holiday season is easy.
In being good stewards of community donations, our Purchasing Manager seeks sales or discounted purchases offered during the year for various items.
In early fall, the Purchasing Manager will establish a team of volunteers to begin the extensive shopping trips to various community stores.
To meet the demands of providing toys to more than 1,200 children each year, many shopping excursions will be required.
As the nominations come in, a database is compiled to capture the gender and ages of all children. Our Purchasing Manager knows exactly how many 2 year old boys, for example, we will be providing toys for in any given year and they will ensure that we have the sufficient number of toys available for our military to choose from.
It also takes a team of volunteers to meet at the store following the purchases to get them all loaded and back to Holiday Helper.
Donations can be mailed to:

For some, sponsoring needed items for an event, is their preferred method. Whether it's the variety of foods placed on the table for our military to enjoy when they arrive to shop, providing water, hot chocolate or coffee to have onhand when our units stop by for an early morning toy run or by providing other means of support, it all ends up benefitting our military members, making them feel appreciated by giving them a memorable event to remember for years to come and most importantly, allowing them to remain focused on the mission with the financial burden of the holidays having been lifted.
