This year’s Holiday Helping Hands is in full swing and food donations are needed. The program helps take care of our own here at White Sands by providing a meal for Thanksgiving, Hanukah or Christmas.
In the past we have helped over 125 families with meals and we’d like to do so again this year. You can help by donating food items such as canned goods. Donations may be dropped off at Army Community Service building 250 across from the post theatre. We need all donations brought to ACS no later than Tuesday November 19th so we can sort them.
You can also help out by purchasing a grocery bag full of food at the commissary for $5. All food purchased will be donated to the Helping Hands Program.
The program has been very successful in the past because of the generosity of everyone who lives and works on post and the support is always very much appreciated. With the sequestration and furloughs the need is greater than ever to take care of our own.
