The eager little faces of 3- to 5-year-old children at the Copperas Cove Sunshine Head Start program lit with excitement on Dec 19, 2019, as Star Group - Veterans Helping Veterans members (Karen Powell, Lovell Mitchell, Jesse Caruth, Anna Mcbean, Joe Hill, Allisa Sherman, Fred Funchess) and Santa donned Santa hats and ushered in the Christmas spirit. The children were excited and dressed in their holiday clothing. 

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 along with Sams Club Harker Heights stepped up and helped put smiles on the faces of the students and their families.  Sams Club supplied all of the coats for each child. And With the help of Sharon Tabor and Refresh Spa in Copperas Cove the workers were presented with a gift certificate for a free massage.

Star Group-Veterans Helping Veterans was asked to assist this head start program with Christmas a few years ago because their donor was no longer able to help.  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.
