Operation Christmas Stocking

December 1, 2010


I am the Leader of my daughters’ Frontier Girls Troop …


Every year we do a Troop project I call, “Operation Christmas Stocking”!  We send a dozen stockings filled with goodies to troops who are deployed far from home.  It’s easy enough to do, and you don’t need to send a dozen, just one would bring some cheer to a Soldier far from home!  




We fill them with goodies … candy, snacks, little games, hygiene items, and everyone gets a handmade card.  The girls love this project, they really put their hearts into it and have fun too!   It is also a great way for them to learn about supporting those brave men and women who are making sacrifices to serve our country. 


I box them up, fill out the necessary customs forms … and off they go to bring a little love to those who will be far from home this Holiday Season.


Happy Soldier!  Mission Acomplished!  If you’d like to send something to bring a little joy to a Soldier you can visit these websites to help you get started: Soldiers Angels or Any Soldier .

Go on … what are you waiting for?!

I love this Coleen! Personally, stockings are one of my favorite parts of Christmas so I can imagine how happy a soldier must feel to receive one filled with such goodies!! Thank you for taking the time to do this for our guys over there!

Coleen, that is an absolutely wonderful project for your girls. And I’m not just saying that as an Army wife…okay, maybe a little. 🙂 They turned out great and I know they are appreciated.
