NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The Nellis Air Force Base First Sergeants Council is continuing its annual Adopt-A-Family gift drive, and is reaching out to the military and civilian community to assist them in reaching their goal of delivering gifts to military families who could use a little extra help during the holidays.

“It is a way to reach out to those who need an extra hand and let them know that we care,” said the Council. “Community members and base members can help out those in need.”

To participate in the program, local community agencies such as banks, fire departments, veteran organizations, community and military personnel are encouraged to donate unwrapped gifts Dec. 10-14, 2012, to the Red Flag hangar at Nellis Air Force Base. Gifts can also be dropped off at the Nellis Air Force Base Visitor Center Dec. 10-14 where there will be a person available to receive the donations.

“Incredible is the only way to describe the feeling of standing in that hangar, organizing the gifts and looking over the piles of presents donated by our generous community. Delivering them to hundreds of less fortunate families is incredibly heartwarming,” said Master Sgt. Brian Noethlich, 57th Operations Group first sergeant. “I’m more amazed each year by the generosity and caring from our community. It reminds me why I do what I do, and why America is so great.”

Any military personnel who want to donate gifts or adopt a family should contact his or her unit first sergeant. All others should contact Master Sergeant Cristy Anderson at cristy.anderson@nellis.af.mil or Master Sgt. Brian Noethlich at brian.noethlich@nellis.af.mil.
