Valdosta - The airmen at Moody Air Force Base spend 365 days a year serving their country. Now they've found another way to serve their community.
"Its our way to give something back because these communities have supported us in peace and in war and we are trying to give our best back," says Lt. Col. Thomas Azar, Wing Chaplain for the base.
It's called the adopt-a-family program, where Moody teams up with the Berrien and Lanier County Division of Family and Children Services to assure families in need find gifts under their trees.
"Most of it is basic, bicycles, sheets, towels, sweatshirts. Things they need to enjoy life. We try to respond because we know a lot of these are foster kids and if we don't give, they won't have a Christmas," he adds.
Last year, Moody adopted more than 30 families. This year, that number has doubled. The airmen collected more than 35 thousand items, enough to fill a semi-truck.
"It was really good to see that many adopted families and that they are all taken care of," says senior Airman Jason Smith.
These gifts will soon find their way into the homes of 62 families who may not have had a Christmas without the help of Moody Air Force Base.
