Sincerely, Team Ellsworth Spouses Club
A huge thank you to all our TESC volunteers along with our community partners, Ellsworth leadership & base organizations that worked together to bring some Holiday Cheer to our 750+ Ellsworth Airmen living in the dorms this holiday season!!
Our Air Force is evolving & so are our Airmen!
Which is how we evolved from a Cookie Drive into Operation Raider Holiday Cheer (ORHC). Besides cookies, we will be collecting & delivering a variety of items our Airmen have requested that makes dorm living & being away from home just a little bit better around the holidays.
This is a collective effort for our Raider Family to provide goodie bags with notes of appreciation. We ask that all items be store bought, individually wrapped or packaged & delivered on or before Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
We know you are an amazing cookie baker! However, under the guidance of our Public Health Office here at Ellsworth we are only allowed to accept store baked & purchased cookies to distribute to the Airmen.
You know it, you love it & everyone can make it! Please only donate individually wrapped packets of microwavable popcorn.
Cookies & Cream?
Brown Sugar & Cinnamon?
There are no wrong answers here because Airmen love Pop Tarts!
Granola Bars or Protein Bars offer a quick option for early morning shifts at the gates or any chance an Airman has to take a break. Please remember to purchase individually wrapped items.
You are stationed at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota? You better believe warm beverages are in your future! Help Airmen stay warm & cozy by purchasing individual packets of hot chocolate.
Trail mix or Nuts work great & are easy to keep on hand for Airmen when they have a quick break from working on the flight line or wherever they might be. Please remember to purchase individually wrapped items.
Can't decide...Fritos or Funyuns?
Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch?
Pretzels or Potato?
Our Answer is "Yes!"
Please remember to purchase individually sized bags of chips.
This is a great lunchtime substitution or breakfast go-to for the Airmen. Because we aren't judging anyone's breakfast! It's the most important meal of the day!!
If you ever had any lean "college years" or "just starting out years" you know just how wonderful a warm Cup of Noodles can be! Any flavor will do!
Would you like to sign up to collect, sort or distribute some amazing goodies to our Ellsworth AFB Airmen living in the dorms? We say it's never too early to get on Santa's Nice List!
We have volunteers ready & willing to put your donation to good use for Operation Raider Holiday Cheer.
You do the donating & we will do the rest! Your support is greatly appreciated!
