Kids Make Holiday Care Packages for Parents Overseas

Kids Make Holiday Care Packages for Parents Overseas

 

The holidays are a time for family which makes it especially hard on kids with parents serving overseas.

The Blue Star Mothers of Henderson and Boulder City have stepped in to help the kids have a happier holiday. The group helped the kids create stockings and care packages to be delivered to their mom or dad overseas. The mothers also recruited Santa Claus to deliver the presents.

“I have got some in Korean, some in Kuwait. I'm going to be all over with those stockings and make sure they get them!” Santa Claus said.

The kids packed up treats and personal items along with notes and pictures. Jade Tapley’s husband is serving in the Air Force. She says these kinds of packages make all the difference.

“It is almost like Christmas morning for him just because he can not wait to see what Jonathan has thrown in the box next. He loves it,” Tapley said.
