First sergeants and leaders of the US Air Force based out of RAF Mildenhall have donated over 250 toys to families in need in the town of Mildenhall and surrounding communities.
The toys, worth up to $4,500, were donated to a local community center as a sign of appreciation from the base for the Mildenhall town community.
The gifts were donated on Monday December 7, and will be given to families in need in and around Mildenhall, a special mission from the US Air Force to spread holiday cheer and happiness during the festive season.
Huge congrats from us at The American for such a lovely gesture!
