The purpose of the III MEF/MCIPAC-MCBB Holiday Food Gift Program (HFGCP) is to provide financial assistance in the form of Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) gift cards to eligible families residing in Okinawa during the December holidays. The intent of the program is to identify qualified families in need of assistance and enable them the opportunity to purchase and enjoy a traditional holiday meal at little or no cost of their own. This program only utilizes DeCA gift cards received as donations. Donated DeCA gift cards may only be accepted in $25.00 or $50.00 denominations. Donated DeCA gift cards should be submitted to Marine and Family Programs, building 445, Camp Foster by 1 December 2022 for use during this year’s program.
Commanding officers desiring to participate in this year’s HFGCP should appoint their senior enlisted advisor(s) or staff noncommissioned officer (or above) designees to serve as their respective primary and alternate HFGCP unit representatives. Unit HFGCP representatives must be available throughout the holiday period to work closely with the respective MSC Coordinators for guidance.
Points of contact for this year’s HFGCP are Ms. Anabel Hayden at 645-8395, Ms. Latashia Smalls 645-3150, and Mr. Terry Burmester at 645-2903. All representatives may be contacted via email at MCBB_HFGCP@usmc.mil.
