     Seattle Post 1 also is an annual contributor to "Santa's Castle", https://www.jblmsantascastle.org/ at JBLM.  They collect NEW toys for active duty military members E-4 and below for distribution at Christmas. When they are suffering family financial difficulties, they may be nominated for the program by their command.  It's for all the services in the Puget Sound area.
