Area residents hoping to spread a little Christmas cheer to U.S. military service personnel serving overseas have a little more than two weeks left to donate to Christmas For Our Troops Inc.
Debbie Burrow, local director for the drive, said local response has been good to date and that volunteers will be soliciting gifts and monetary donations through Dec. 1.
The inspiration for the drive is simple, she said â€” the desire to let troops serving in combat zones that the folks back home haven't forgotten them.
