Operation Holiday Joy

The Armed Services YMCA of Alaska, in partnership with Women’s Day Magazine, provides military parents who are facing financial hardship with a variety of gift cards, toys, and basic necessities that ensure a merry Christmas for their children. Military leadership identifies families who are experiencing extraordinary challenges or hardship and nominates them as recipients for Operation Holiday Joy. The gifts provided to these families through Operation Holiday Joy are a deeply appreciated, and help lift their spirits during the holiday season.
