Our Mission ~ "This organization shall contribute to the advancement and improvement of the quality of life on the installation. Santa's Workshop is exclusively funded by donations and is staffed entirely by volunteers who strive to present a professional and positive attitude while working year round in order to distribute new toys, books, and games to children in the Fort Hood military community during Christmas time."
Santa's Workshop, a 501-C3 non-profit organization, was originated exclusively for charitable purposes as a unit-level (13th COSCOM) initiative. Out of necessity, it grew into an installation-level project in 1998. Our mission is to make new toys accessible for needy children of the Fort Hood military community during the holiday season.
Who knows the needs of the children better than their parents? At Santa's Workshop Fort Hood, the parents browse our well-stocked shelves to make the most appropriate selections of brand new toys, games and books for their children. This past year we helped over 3,600 children to enjoy a happier holiday.
The success of Santa's Workshop is a direct result of the generous support received from the military community and from the many individuals, private organizations and businesses in and around Central Texas. With their help, our typical annual inventory consists of more than 100,000 toys, 3600 books and 3600 games. The approximate monetary value of gifts distributed for each child is $42, but the non-monetary value is immeasurable.
