The eager little faces of 3- to 5-year-old children at the Copperas Cove Sunshine Head Start program lit with excitement on Friday morning, Dec 15, 2017, as Star Group - Veterans Helping Veterans members and Santa donned Santa hats and sang Christmas songs for their parents and loved ones.

As Santa sat by the Christmas tree, his helpers (SG-VHV Members) called one child at a time to come up to visit with Santa and to receive their gifts.   Once everyone received their gifts, which included a jacket, hats, gloves, scarf plus a bag full of toys; they were instructed to open some of their gifts and the others were taken home to be placed under their Christmas tree.  Again, Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans stepped up and helped put smiles on the faces of the students and their families. 

Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans was asked to assist this head start program with Christmas three years ago.  Then the SG-VHV team voted to adopt the Copperas Cove Sunshine Head Start and will ensure that they always have a wonderful Christmas.

“All week they were excited because Santa was coming. This is good for them and very special, because it helps give them ‘the something good’ — the Magic of Christmas.  “When they talked to Santa, they asked for things for their moms and dads and not just themselves. These are already very giving children; which is the premise of Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans, to help others, not expecting anything in return.”
