SUN CITY, Texas — The Sun City Hiking Club collected and donated approximately $6,000 worth of toys and a $4,310 check to USO Fort Hood to help Fort Hood families with their holiday needs in a ceremony at the Cowan Creek Golf Course here, Nov. 11.

“There’s a lot of veterans that live down here in Sun City. I’m myself 30 years Air Force. We understand, especially for young soldiers … how hard it can be for them to get toys at Christmas time,” said Jeff Helm, co-chair of the Sun City Hiking Club USO Toy Drive. “We just wanted to help out and make their holidays a little bit more enjoyable.”
