Operation Santa is picking up steam . The bulk of these toys were donated by our brave first responders, El Segundo fire fighters. This was by far the biggest donation of toys that we have ever received from any one source. Not only was a truck and 2 SUVs full of toys but they were really awesome stuff – kids are going to love them. Thank you El Segundo Fire Department for making Christmas a lot more special for the kids of our combat wounded Veterans. Continue reading El Segundo Fire Department Toy DeliveryShare:
Thank you Jim – Just in the nick of time!
Today Jim Chen, owner/operator of Independent Repair and Tire Pros in Redondo Beach, came through for us as he has done many times in the past. Jim is a local business owner and a great friend that has always supported our foundation helping wounded Veterans. Today he donated $1,000.00 to buy toys for our Christmas program and bring many smiles to children of Veteran families on Christmas day. Receiving the funds is Jose Cortez, one of our wounded Veterans, who by the way has taken a real lead role in this year’s Operation Santa.

Christmas time is a special time of the year at Wounded Heroes of America. It’s a time when many of our Vets and their families gather at the office to volunteer for fundraising, buying gifts, wrapping, and making Santa deliveries. It’s a true joy to see so many of our wounded Veterans come out to interact with other families and enjoy the holiday spirit with their own loved ones.

There is an undisputable fact that Americans love their Vets. We at Wounded Heroes of America rely heavily on the help and support from our community to be able to accomplish the work we do. Without the help from community leaders, business owners, and local politicians we could not do what we do. We have developed the best relationship, friendship, adoption; call it what you will- but it’s a collaboration to help our wounded Veterans with the South Bay Sunrise Rotary Club of Torrance. This club is not the biggest club around, they meet at 7:00am (which is not Happy Hour) yet they are the biggest givers, most motivated, happiest people you can meet at 7:00am in the morning. Best of all, they are one of our biggest supporters and best friends.

Merry Christmas everyone! Operation Santa has officially begun. We have a big December coming up and Santa’s helpers are already helping to collect donated toys. We have lots of children that will be receiving gifts from Santa, who is a combat wounded Santa by the way, again this year and we need your help and support. Every toy donated is a toy we don’t have to purchase and are able to allocate these funds back to enhancing our Veteran programs. If you would like to support Operation Santa and drop off unwrapped toys, here are three locations in the city of Hawthorne: Continue reading 2015 Operation Santa Toy Drop Off LocationsShare:
