Last year the Copperas Cove Sunshine Head Start program contacted Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans to help make the Christmas bright for these children.  One of the program volunteers indicated that she had run out of options to help and could not find a Sponsor but she felt these kids deserved a good Christmas.  She stated she heard about Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans from different places; “I knew that Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans was in the business of blessing people that may be in need, and I thought I would ask them if they could help us out because we had no sponsors this year. And look how they came through — they are a blessing to this community.”

Star Group Veterans Helping Veterans decided to help again this year (2016) and surprised the volunteers and workers at the Sunshine Head Start by informing them of their decision to be the 2016 Sponsor.  

SG-VHV collaborated with AT&T (Copperas Cove and Killeen) and gave these 34 Children an awesome Christmas.  AT&T donated jackets/coats gloves and hats.  SG-VHV gave each child several packages that included toys, games, pajamas, clothes, etc.  The Head Start Sunshine Christmas party was so much fun as the children were overly excited.  People from both AT&T offices as well as several SG-VHV members were present to ensure the party was a success.  The children were able to open the huge gift bags that included a jacket/coat hat, gloves, play dough, coloring books and crayons.  The other gifts were given to the parents to take home so the children had presents to open on Christmas Day.  Gifts were also given to the Head Start Volunteers to thank them for their efforts and concern for others.  The Event was awesome and the true spirit of giving and community.

SG-VHV was able to Sponsor Sunshine Head Start Program, Killeen Mission Homeless Shelter, Copperas Cove Soup Kitchen and Fort Hood Community in Schools from the donations made by our members and the SG-VHV Premier Corporate Sponsors.  The SG-VHV members are always ready to give whenever there is a need and These generous businesses give back to the community through their sponsorship of SG-VHV.  Thank You to our Premier Corporate Sponsors for continuing to support SG-VHV as we support the community.
