Play Comforts Delivers Thousands of Toys to Military Families
On October 22nd partners from the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and
Boys and Girls Clubs of America joined forces for a special toy
distribution and Halloween carnival for Army and Air Force families
stationed in Germany. More than 7,000 servicemen and women and their
children gathered to take part in the fall festivities which included
face painting, bouncy castles, and a spooktacular costume parade. The
giveaway was the last distribution of the year and the second
international event for the partnership that began in 2009.
“We are so proud to host this wonderful event, not only for the
children located right here in Ramstein and Vogelweh Air Force Bases,
but throughout the Kaiserslautern Military Community,” shared
Josie Cordova, Chief of Airman and Family Services Flight. Families
representing Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, USAG
Kaiserslautern and USAG Baumholder were also in attendance.
