Give2TheTroops Asks For Donations

With the holidays right around the corner Give2TheTroops is in crunch mode to make sure they get as many gifts out as possible.

The national organization ships care packages to soldiers deployed around the world spreading the holiday spirit. In October more than 25,000 gifts were sent out and just this week 150 more troops have requested holiday packages from the North Carolina branch in Greenville.

North Carolina branch director Barbara Whitehead says, "We want troops to feel that touch of home and that taste of home while they're away from family and friends so we are absolutely inundated with Christmas stockings trying to get it packed up to send to the troops."
