WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- With the holiday season quickly approaching, the Wright-Patterson Chapel Corps is working hard to make sure those who have to work on Thanksgiving day still get to enjoy delicious homemade goodies.

The Chapel Corps program “Operation Dessert Storm" provides desserts to Airmen in different organizations who are assigned to work on Thanksgiving Day.

“The Chapel Corps created this program a couple of years ago to help boost morale during Thanksgiving and to show Airmen the Chaplain Corps is here for them and we care,” stated 1st Lt. Matthew Quilala, 88th Air Base Wing chaplain.

Operation Dessert Storm will accept dessert donations from volunteers on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at the Kittyhawk Chapel, located behind the WPAFB Bowling Alley, Area A, from noon to 5 p.m.

Program volunteers will sort the donated desserts and prepare them to be delivered to the identified organizations around the base.

“We’ll be delivering these desserts whole, they’re not going to be cut-up or anything like that,” said Quilala. “It’s up to them to divide amongst themselves.”

Volunteers will distribute the donated desserts on Thanksgiving morning from 9 to 11 a.m.

“Any identified organization who will be working on Thanksgiving Day will receive desserts,” said Quilala. “This is just a small way we can serve them on Thanksgiving morning.”

If you would like information about volunteering or donating a dessert, please email or contact the WPAFB Chapel at 937-257-7427.
