To say we love our military, veteran, and first responder families here in Killeen, Texas, is an understatement. After all, we're a military town and welcome any opportunity to support those who've served our country and our community.

Toys For Troops Is Back

One of our favorite traditions is Toys For Troops - a local mission aimed at ensuring that no military or first responder family in need is left without presents to put under the tree this holiday season.

We're overjoyed to once again team up with wonderful local sponsors to make this Christmas a magical one for those families who could use a little miracle.

You Can Help Make A Christmas Miracle For Local Military and First Responder Families

From now through Wednesday, December 13, Central Texans can leave new, unwrapped toys and gifts in the loving hands of the fine sponsors below. We'll deliver all the toys collected at these locations to Operation Phantom Support. Our friends at OPS will then make sure those gifts end up under the trees and inside the stockings of local kids whose parents are serving or have served and could use a little help this Christmas season.

Together We Can Do This

You've made this annual toy drive an enormous success in recent years, even during the turbulent 2020 holiday season, and we know you'll do it again because Central Texans are generous folks who love taking care of our veterans and public servants.

Here's Where You Can Give
