Ho-Ho-Ho: Military Families at Yokota can visit Santa virtually as AAFES partners with JingleRing

Yokota Air Base – Though COVID-19 might put some holiday events on hold, Santa Claus will still be making the rounds virtually with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and JingleRing.

JingleRing provides a platform for Yokota families to spend time with St. Nick in a contactless, virtual environment from the comfort of home. Families can choose from a culturally diverse list of Santas who speak several languages, including American Sign Language.

“It’s comforting to know that Santa will always be there for our military families,” said Yokota Exchange General Manager Julia Woods. “The Yokota Exchange welcomes the opportunity to help our Warfighters and their families create some cherished memories.”

Registration is available at jinglering.com/aafes. From there, families can select the Yokota Exchange and sign up.

Pricing packages start at $19.96 for up to three children. Features also include visits from Mrs. Claus, storytime sessions and post-holiday thank-you visits from the Clauses.

After the visit, a link will be provided as a keepsake so Yokota families can revisit their conversation with Santa. The only requirement is a device with internet access.

Honorably discharged Veterans who have verified their eligibility to shop the Exchange online can sign up for visits, too. Veterans can find out more on the Exchange’s community Hub page at https://bit.ly/Vets4Life.
