Santa's Helpers

by Admin Admin

It has been our family tradition for many years to buy Christmas toys for children that might not have the opportunity to have a Christmas gift. We always include our grandchildren in this effort. We feel that it is very important to share the gift of giving. When they are very young sometimes they do not understand why we are buying toys for other kids; as they become older it is something that they look forward to every year. It is so interesting how they put so much thought into what they would like to purchase. We also include new pajamas, coats, gloves, and hats… the parents that pick these items out, not the kids.

This year we made our donation to the Mountain Post Santa’s Workshop at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. They are so organized!!! They have a room on post that they set up like a small store. Service members in need are invited in to select toys that they would like for their family.

Pictured with the toys that we donated are Mellissa Stahl, Donna Handoe, Christina Svarstad, Nick Merrick, and Gary Gerza. Nick and Gary are members of the Green Beret Association.

We are so excited to have found this organization. Their motto is, “Keeping the holiday spirit alive for the children of Fort Carson”. MPSW is a non-profit organization which runs on volunteers and donations. All donations are tax-deductible.

If you would like to make a donation of any unwrapped toy you may send it to:

Mountain Post Santa’s Workshop

P.O. Box 12869

Fort Carson, CO 80902

Or check out their website at

I think this is a great way to support the men and women serving our country by helping their families have a wonderful Christmas!!

The website for the Green Beret Association is This is also a wonderful organization that supports the soldiers that might have gotten wounded or killed in action. Check them out as well; they are always looking for donations.

Thank you for your support of our business!! We at CM Designs, Inc. would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
