Happy Colorado National Guard families and Red Cross Volunteers gathered on Saturday, Dec. 14th, for a Santa’s Workshop at the Chestnut Street Armory as Colorado Spring’s Citizen Soldiers prepare for the holiday season. The Red Cross and the National Guard Family Assistance group were handing out linens, toys and blankets and being Santa’s helpers for parents who had their arms filled. Jim Griffith, Manager for the Service to Armed Forces program for the Red Cross Colorado & Wyoming Region said, “It’s a great way to support our National Guard families.”
