Helping rescue Christmas

They come to our rescue all year long -- the men and women in the Armed Forces who serve our country. So if we can, in a small way, make their Christmas a little brighter... well, we're all over that.

Last year, we contacted our local Fairchild Air Force Base and found there was a need for toddler toys so that the children of the deployed servicemen would have something under their Christmas trees. We ended up donating over 100 wrapped toys. This year, the need was for infants. So our Sterling "elves" shopped for and wrapped another 100 toys. We delivered them last Friday.

Here are those who helped with buying and wrapping:
