Operation Raider Holiday Cheer

Operation Raider Holiday Cheer

Operation Raider Holiday Cheer is in full swing! We’ve partnered up with the 28th Bomb Wing to give over 700 Airmen in the dorms a little gift of joy and holiday spirit this year.

Our mission is to spread holiday cheer to our young Airmen at Ellsworth AFB, and we’d love your support! We are reaching out to the community for help in showing appreciation of our military members during the holiday season. We want them to feel the magic of the holidays first hand, with an extra dose of Black Hills hospitality. 

Our goal is to deliver 750 goodie bags, and hope to have at least 6 cookies or treats per bag. To reach that goal, we humbly request donations listed below.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are unable to accept homemade baked goods or treats this year. Thank you for your understanding, and we apologize for any inconvenience.



  • Bakery, Restaurant or Other Pre-made Cookies
  • Individually Wrapped Treats (candy, pretzels, granola, etc.)
  • Notes of Appreciation 


  • Black Hills Community Bank
    840 Mt. Rushmore Rd.
    Rapid City, SD
  • Evergreen Media
    329 Main Street Ste. #1

We are collecting donations until December 14th. All goodies are planned to be assembled and delivered to the Airmen on December 16, 2020.
