Season of giving

Volunteers from Edwards’ First Sergeants Council and Lockheed Martin prepare Operation Home Front holiday meal gift bags for Edwards families that may need extra help. The bags contained dry goods to create a holiday meal, as well as a $25 Commissary gift certificate to get a turkey or ham, a small AAFES BX certificate, a family game and a movie. The First Sergeants Council worked with supervisors across the base to help identify those families that would benefit from some extra holiday help. Lockheed Martin provided finances and volunteers to help with the effort. Operation Homefront is a nationwide nonprofit organization that assists military families during difficult financial times by providing food assistance, auto and home repair, vision care, travel and transportation, moving assistance, essential home items, and rent-free transitional housing for wounded veterans and their families. Operation Homefront arranged for approximately 250 meals at Edwards, and will provide more than 1,000 holiday meals in California.
