Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

This year December 15 is National Wreaths Across America Day. Where We Remember.

We have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.  In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I hope you will join me in showing our veterans and their families that we will not forget. We will never forget.

This Holiday Season will be traumatic for many families in our area who have suffered the ravages of Hurricane Florence and the smaller, yet still tragic effects of the remains of Hurricane Michael. It is our hope that this will provide our community with a little bit of cheer during this holiday season!

Santa at the Farm is open to all children and their families, free of charge!  The event will include equine activities (pony/horse rides), a visit with Santa, a gift from Santa (stuffed horse, fruit, candy cane, etc), games & activities, face painting, fire truck, and a complete lunch for all. Our 2017 attendance was approximately 90 children and family members. We are hoping to double this in 2018!

If you are interested in becoming a donor, we will recognize donors by designating a Santa at the Farm wall display. We would be thrilled if you would consider one of the categories below:

Santa— sponsor lunch (Barbeque & Chicken)--$1,250.00
Rudolph— sponsor gift bags--$1,000.00
Frosty the Snowman— sponsor a child for Holiday Camp--$150.00
Elf—general donation -- $20.00 or more


Donors are invited to attend Santa at the Farm where we will recognize Santa, Rudolph, Frosty and Elves. Thank you for your consideration and support of our local community!

Calling All Elves!

 

It is that time of year again and we are once again recruiting for elves to participate in Operation Covert Santa XII -2018 (OpCoSanta).   

 

As with the previous 11 years, Operation Covert Santa remains a very simple idea. Christmas is a very difficult time for sick and injured service members and their families. They are dealing with so many stressful issues in an unfamiliar setting away from home. Providing gifts for their loved ones is often too difficult or impossible under the circumstances. We approach these sick or injured service members and their families and ask them to give us their "Santa List" and to leave the rest to us.  Many of them are reluctant at first. It might sound to them as if we are offering charity and they are too proud to even consider that prospect. Our response is to ask them, "Don't you believe in Santa Claus?" This isn't charity. This is simply Santa Claus doing his job.  We then take these lists, remove the individual names and anything else that would uniquely identify them and assign a number to each list and include a very brief general description of the service member or family member.   This is where you come in. Each elf can choose to provide the gifts from a Santa List for a whole Large Family (typically a husband, wife, and 2 or more children, a whole Small Family (a husband and wife and one or no children), an Individual Service Member or family member, an Individual Gift, or make a Cash Contribution towards these gifts. You buy the gifts, wrap the gifts and deliver them to us. We deliver them to the service member and their families from Santa Claus in the true spirit of Christmas giving. Keep in mind that families come in all shapes and sizes to include moms and dads, brothers and sisters, and other significant others.

 

  As one of the elves from a previous year pointed out this is the purest form of giving. These are gifts given and received anonymously.  Last year over 214 elves provided a wonderful Christmas for 74 sick and injured service member and their families. This year we believe there could be as many or more who need to leave it to Santa to take care of their Christmas lists, so we will need that many or more elves to step forward. So, we are asking each of you to consider being an elf again this year and to send this email to your friends and families. Tell them about your experience last year and see if they want to become an elf.

 

While the delivery date for all gifts is NO LATER THAN Friday, December 14th PLEASE consider delivering your packages AS SOON AS POSSIBLE as Husky Elf is getting on in years and avoiding the last-minute rush is greatly appreciated. Also, most questions from previous years are answered below in "THE DIRECTIONS" so check them out first. New questions are always welcome.

 

If you would like to become an elf and help fulfill these Santa lists or have any questions, please send me an email at 

huskyelf@gmail.com

Thanks, 

Husky Elf 

(AKA Ed Meagher)

Apologies if you receive this email more than once

 

 

 

A few Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Q:     Can we take care of more than one family?

A:     Yes

 

Q:     Can a group take a family?

A:     Absolutely! Work, friends, families, neighbors, and church groups are welcome. However, we do need a single point of contact that is responsible for organizing the group, assigning the gifts, wrapping and getting them to us. 

 

Q:     Can we meet our service member and/or his family or get pictures, etc.?

A:     No! Unequivocally NO! This is COVERT Santa.

 

Q:     Can we find out more about our service member?

A:     No. There are very strict military rules and what we tell you is all that is allowed. If we were to violate the rules the operation would be terminated.

 

Q:     Can we put personal messages in with our gifts?

A:     No, but you can channel Santa Claus. Please keep it short and light and from Santa. No names, emails, phone numbers or requests to contact. 

        Please remember that a simple, however well intended violation of the rules can put the whole program in jeopardy.

 

Q:     Are we restricted to exactly what they asked for?

A:     NO! This is Christmas. Surprises and generosity are encouraged especially when it comes to the kids.

 

Q:     Are there any restrictions on gifts?

A:     No not really just a few common-sense things to consider.

For the most part, these service members and their families are currently living in very tight quarters so very large things can cause storage and transportation issues. If what you want to get them is large, consider a gift certificate with a picture of the gift.

        

We do not put any restrictions on their Santa Claus lists. However, if you are uncomfortable with or unable to accommodate any given gift just let us know and we can adjust.

 

Q:     Can we send the gifts to you early?

A:     Yes, Yes, and Yes. Husky Elf highly encourages early delivery. 

 

Q:     What is a standby Elf?

A:     That is an elf that in addition to volunteering to take care of a family or service member volunteers to take care of a late arriving injured service member and family.

         If you can also be a standby elf put that in your response.

 

Q:     What is a Shopping elf?

A:     That is an elf that can take a shopping list and a provided debit card and go shopping for gifts, wrap them, and get them to us.

 

Q:     What about gift receipts?

A:     If you are not sure of a size or color you can include a "Gift receipt" to facilitate a gift exchange, otherwise no receipts please. Keep them for your records.

 

Q:     What are the perks and benefits of participating in Operation Covert Santa VI?

A:     First, you get to assign yourself an elf name. I am Husky Elf. 

         Second, on Christmas Day you get to go off by yourself and take a moment to appreciate what a good thing you did and that you did it for all the right reasons.

         Third, actually there is no third perk or benefit.  

 

Q:     What if we have other questions?

A:     Just send them to Husky Elf at huskyelf@gmail.com
