SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – Approximately 100 children of U.S. Transportation Command workers were treated Dec. 15 to an afternoon filled with games, sweet snacks, crafts, gifts, and best of all, a visit from Santa Claus, at the USTRANSCOM Children’s Holiday party.

The annual event, sponsored by the Transporter Booster club, was held at the Honor Guard training facility on Scott Air Force Base and featured a gift for every child, donated by Operation Homefront, in Fenton, Mo.

“This year’s party was even better than last year,” said Senior Master Sgt. Matthew Randall, USTRANSCOM first sergeant.  “There were snacks, a cake walk and games.  The children could make craft items and Christmas ornaments and they all received either a Pillow Pet, DVDs or sidewalk chalk (kits).”

There were more gifts than children, so the excess were donated to Toys for Tots or Children’s Hospital in St. Louis.

“We’ve been planning the party since the end of September,” Randall said.  “I want to thank Petty Officer 1st Class Brian Crume, booster club president and Master Sgt. Dwayne Turner, vice president, for all the work they did to make this year a success.”
