Virginia State University student athletes and the VSU Foundation recently supported Fort Lee’s Holiday Helper Association. Student athletes helped wrap and sort gifts and the Foundation donated $1,000 to the program.
Holiday Helper allows lower ranking military members stationed at Fort Lee to shop for holiday toys, stocking stuffers, hats, mittens and gloves for their children free of charge. Holiday Helper has a permanent “toy store” located on Fort Lee which features toys arranged by age group and gender. Military members are also provided a food voucher to assist with their holiday meal.
Participants are selected by their senior leaders based on need.
