This project is being carried out by Operation Give, an “America Supports You” organization that works throughout the year to support American troops. Last year we sent more than 50 tons of stockings to our troops in Iraq & Afghanistan. This year help us send even more!
You can make your own stockings, buy stockings, create gift bags or decorate boxes. Pre-Filled Christmas Stockings and Gift Boxes can be purchased from our website. You can also find additional ideas below.
