Florida-based children’s charity Kids Wish Network has provided more than $280,000 in toys and necessities in support of the U.S. Army’s Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop for children in need in Fort Bragg, N.C., and in agencies across the U.S. Kids Wish Network is an international charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations.

Since 1998, U.S. Army base Fort Bragg and the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command [USACAPOC (A)] have hosted the Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop to benefit local children in need. During a week-long toy drive, paratroopers and other members of the military bring new, unwrapped toys to the base to benefit the children in need all around Fort Bragg. Once collected, the toys are sorted, wrapped, and distributed to local children’s homes and social service agencies. Since the Operation’s inception, the Army has collected and distributed more than 75,000 toys for children in need.

In the past four years, Kids Wish Network has provided more than $1 million worth of gifts to Operation Toy Drop. For more information on Kids Wish Network, visit www.kidswishnetwork.org.
