Toys for Troops works hand-in-hand with Operation Once in a Lifetime. They host a toy drive once a year in the Dallas area, and then donate the toys to us so that we can distribute them to all of our active duty, veteran, and first responder families who sign up to participate in this program.
We post updates on when sign up will start to our Facebook, so make sure to like and follow our page for the most recent news.
*Donations are not required to use our Services, which include the Nancy Miller Food Pantry, but you must be an Active Duty, Honorable Veteran, or First Responder
Toys for Troops is a yearly toy drive that works along side Operation Once In A Lifetime each year to help provide toys for our military families over the Christmas holidays.
Each year, Operation Once In A Lifetime hosts a toy drive in the Dallas area, and then donate the toys to us. We will then put up a sign-up form for our military families to sign up to receive toys for their children for the holidays. Our Phantom Corps donors receive priority access to this program, while non Phantom Corps donors do not.

We will post updates to our Facebook when the 2018 sign up is getting ready to start!
