This Saturday the Tech boys and I volunteered with Operation Homefront Holiday Toy Drive. Operation Homefront is an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to service members and wounded warriors.
My dad served over 20 years in the US Army and retired as a SFC. We were fortunate to be able to travel as a family everywhere he was stationed, and all of my holidays are full of joyous memories. I was reminded there are lots of military families that don't have that privilege, and many of the people we would be serving are being deployed during Christmas. I felt honored to be able to give back to my military family and spread some holiday joy.
I got to use my muscles for good, unloading all the toys that had been donated for military families.
We then helped to sort all the toys to the appropriate rooms.
It looked like Toys-R-Us in the Galleria by the time we were done!

If you've donated anything physical, emotional, monetary, or your time throughout the year, Thank You!
Health and Happiness,
