***image1***“Santa Claus,” also known as Senior Airman Richard Palmer, 435th Munitions Squadron, gives a gift Dec. 20 to a Reha Zentrum student at the facility’s Christmas Wish 2006 party in Landstuhl.

Master Sgts. Shawn Steff, USAFE A3 and Chris Barks, USAFE A4, arranged for various KMC organizations to sponsor 380 Reha Zentrum students and residents.

The Reha Zentrum facility is a center for mentally and physically disabled school-age children and older adults who require additional assistance. This was the second year KMC groups have been involved in the holiday event. Reha Zentrum students made wish lists of items including blankets, night lights and games. KMC Airmen and civilians provided the gifts.

Units interested in participating next year can contact Master Sgt. Shawn Steff at 480-7570 or Master Sgt. Chris Barks at 480-5522.
