With the same military precision of our courageous countrymen and women serving overseas, dozens of volunteers chipped in on Sunday to assemble personalized goodie-filled holiday stockings for 10,000 (!) US troops in Afghanistan. For eight years now, the Stockings for Soldiers program, under the inspired leadership of founder Judy Travis, has brought happiness and holiday cheer to so many American troops serving in harms way, far away from family and loved ones. Judy and team are pushing hard to pack everything up for shipment by December 2, but donations and volunteers are still needed. For more information on how you can help make a big difference in someone’s life this holiday season, please contact Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
