HENDERSON, Nev. – The city of Henderson is partnering with the Blue Star Mothers of Henderson and Boulder City to assemble holiday stockings for troops deployed overseas.

The Blue Star Mothers, local businesses and city employees are collecting a long list of supplies with the goal to stuff 1,000 holiday stockings with the comforts of home.

“As a mother of one who has served, I’m personally aware of the sacrifices our soldiers make to defend the freedoms of our country,” said Henderson Councilwoman Debra March. “I’m proud to support the Blue Star Mothers and this opportunity for our community to thank our troops and help brighten their holidays.”

Collection boxes will be placed throughout Henderson City Hall, recreation centers and with local businesses in the Water Street District. Stockings will be assembled over a two-day period and sent to local soldiers who are currently deployed overseas.

If you know of a Henderson soldier who is deployed, please submit their contact information at cityofhenderson.com so they can receive their very own stocking.

The Blue Star Mothers of Henderson and Boulder City is a volunteer organization of mothers with children who are or have honorably served in the military. The Blue Star Mothers provide support for active duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations, and are available to assist in homeland volunteer efforts.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
