Barksdale Exchange pays Christmas layaway tabs for 9 Barksdale Air Force Base families

BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. (KSLA) — The Barksdale Exchange is bringing joy to nine military families.

For the third year in a row, the Exchange has paid off Barksdale Air Force Base families’ layaway gift lists.

To be selected, the Exchange looks for families with gifts for children.

Organizers of the effort say they want to focus on military youths because they have family members deployed during the holiday season.

The winners found out Thursday afternoon that everything on their layaway lists was paid.

“It’s truly a blessing,” Brenda Moye said.

The Exchange considers this a way to not only support military families but to remind them that their service is appreciated.
