Calling all Christmas elves, concerned citizens, and otherwise cool people who would just love to help!
“Bringing the Spirit of Christmas to the families of our real American Heroes on the frontlines.”
Operation Iraq-Afghanistan is excited to support the families of our American Heroes here on the homefront!
Our authorities in Washington DC blessed us with the good news of a downsized presence in Afghanistan as well as a real surplus of packages received on the frontlines last year. We are excited at the opportunity to focus on the families here at home with the emphasis on bringing “The Spirit of Christmas” to the children.
We will unite for our 9th year and touch the hearts of our children here at home by filling thousands of Christmas Stockings for our very special military families. We all know they deserve nothing less than the very best from us. We are looking to collect Christmas stockings, toys, games and more for the ages infants thru 18 years of age.
How You Can Help
We will be packing up our heartfelt Christmas Stockings November 18th at 6:00p.m. daily at the Totem Commercial Center located at 12700 NE 124th St, Suite #8 in Kirkland, WA. We will have an Operation Iraq-Afghanistan banner across the front of the building so that you can easily find us. Please make all efforts to car pool with others as we want to take full advantage of space available for parking and keep everyone safe. If you would like to volunteer to help pack, bring a few Christmas stockings and join us at 6:00pm. Email us to let us know how many are in your group. Thank you!
