Ellsworth Airmen and Santa bring holiday cheer to YFS

By  | 

Youth and Family Services received a visit from St. Nick who partnered with his fellow world flyers members of the Ellsworth Air Force Base to hand out gifts to the infant, toddler, and preschool age children who attend YFS.

This is the eleventh year Ellsworth has donated gifts to YFS from the Angel Tree program. Almost two hundred gifts were dropped off this year and even more smiles were on the faces of everyone who attended today's event.

Ellsworth Air force base Colonel Brian Farmer says, " Smiles on their faces they love it. This is a great opportunity to interact with them they are very happy for us to come in here and just spend a few minutes with us today and give them a little bit of holiday cheer."

Colonel Farmer added that this is also a great opportunity for the Airman to give back to the community that gives so much to the Base.

The Post office also donated 60 gifts to school age children who attend YFS
