The city of Henderson is working with the Blue Star Mothers of Henderson and Boulder City to put together holiday stockings for troops deployed overseas.
The Blue Star Mothers will be collecting supplies, including non-perishable food items, lip balm, magazines and personal care items to package and send to troops for the holidays.
This year the Mothers are looking to stuff 1,000 stockings with the comforts of home. Collection boxes will be set up at the Henderson City Hall, city recreation centers and at businesses along Water Street District.
Besides gathering items to give to service members, the group is also looking for information about Henderson residents who are deployed. Family and friends can submit contact information at cityofhenderson.com, so service members can get their very own stocking.
