Holiday Toy Giveaway at Fort Bragg

December 6, 2019: Wow - what a day here at the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg. We were humbled by the generosity of Paratroopers who donated toys for Fort Bragg families and in appreciation of the support from the Travis Mills Foundation to deliver donated toys not only to us but also various organizations throughout the area. 

The toy drop off occurred Thursday, December 5 and was led by the generous and very funny team from the Travis Mills Foundation. Below is photo of the second round of toy donations they dropped off!


We then had an awesome group of Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg volunteers sort the donations, lay out for pickup, and actually man the volunteer shift on Friday! Below are a couple of snapshots of their hard work. THANK YOU!


We also had a volunteer kiddo inspect the toys for "fun". She gave a hearty seal of approval!


Finally came the day of - and what fun we had! Families began arriving at our office before 8 am (when the giveaway started at 9!) Everyone was so kind, pleasant, and respectful. Many expressed their appreciation of this support and were in joy of the items that were donated. 


Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible!
