One Washington County group is kicking off the holiday season by giving back to veterans.
Working with the Soldier Angels, the Caggle Group has set up collection boxes at three locations in Boonsboro and Sharpsburg, Maryland.
Organizers of the project say they are accepting donations of things that soldiers overseas do not have access to.
“Slim Jims, playing cards, travel games, word search books, candy canes, lip balm, any holiday item,” said Melissa Slifer of Caggle Group. “That could just brighten somebody’s day.”
They will be collecting stockings and treats until November 9.
