VFW sets Operation Homefront events

Print Article

Boys and girls in this area can receive free toys and more on next week, Dec. 14-15 in Priest River — including an opportunity to take a free photo with Santa Claus.

“Operation Homefront wants to share holiday cheer, presents and winter items for the boys and girls,” said Lane Thompson, coordinator of the event and a National Guard member. “If you are a veteran, we especially hope to see you and your family here. The Christmas season is also about giving back to those who serve our nation.”

This event will take place at VFW Post 2909 at 113 Larch Street in Priest River. Toys collected from Oldtown’s Dollar Tree will be distributed from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. There will be plenty of free parking.

During Saturday’s event, VFW Post 2909 will also offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. The cost is $3 for 12 years and under and $6 for those older. Later that day, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available for photos from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

VFW Post 2909 members will be available on both days to share assistance information to help local veteran families. For questions or more information, contact Thompson at 208-946-8277 or VFWPost2909@gmail.com.
