Photo Gallery | Blue Star Mothers Fill Stockings for Troops

 

Dozens of people showed up Monday to help sort through hundreds of donations that will be sent to local military members serving overseas.

The Blue Star Mothers of Henderson and Boulder City collected all kinds of items in 40 donation boxes set up throughout Boulder City and Henderson over the past few weeks.

The stuffed stockings will be shipped to troops in war zones over the holiday season. Tuesday the families of military members will get a chance to fill their own stocking to be sent to their deployed loved one.  

Wednesday the Henderson City Council and first graders from McCaw Elementary School will help stuff stockings and create colorful cards to go with the care packages.

City employees and local businesses have helped collect items for the 1500 holiday stockings that will be going out.
