Here in Central Texas, we love our military and first responder families and appreciate all they've done for us. Whether you live in Copperas Cove, Killeen, Harker Heights, Belton, or Temple, chances are you're part of a military or first responder family, or know and love people who are.

Just like the rest of us, these families sometimes fall on tough times or can't quite be together on the holidays, and could use a helping hand. That's where Operation Phantom Support (OPS) and Toys for Troops come in.

From now through December 13, OPS and a list of awesome sponsors will cheerfully accept donations of new, unwrapped toys and gifts for these special families in our community.
