Handing out smiles, one American Girl doll at a time

Military children across the Northeast experienced a brighter holiday season this year, thanks to the American Girl Doll Company.  The Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) team received a very generous donation of 72 American Girl dolls specifically for children of military families.  SAF was able to coordinate with the National Guard Family Programs Offices and Survivor Outreach Services teams in both New Hampshire and Vermont.  The team mobilized quickly to make this donation a reality, with special help from Kristen Coates, who used her superwoman speed to pick up the dolls from Springfield, MA and wonder woman Ann Malconian who went above and beyond to deliver the Maine SAF teams dolls to their director ahead of the impending holiday!  Thanks Ladies!

Our wonderful partners at the National Guard in both states were thrilled upon receiving this generous donation!  Thanks again to the American Girl Doll Company for bringing smiles to some of our region’s military kids!
