Christmas Across Maine

As the holidays approach, the elves at the Maine National Guard Family Assistance Center are hard at work collecting gifts. As part of the confidential Christmas Across Maine program, the center works to match military families with people in the community who want to help. Master Sgt. Barbara Claudel, state family programs director, and Mark Cater, family assistance service center coordinator prepare to sort through the most recent delivery and prepare for the gifts to be delivered to families.
