Clarkston VFW Christmas Wishes accepting donations

This labor of love is all about sending Christmas cheer to soldiers who can’t be home for the holidays.

VFW Post 1443 is packing for another year of Christmas wishes for our heroes.

Last year they sent out 100 boxes to places like Afghanistan and Iraq.

The hand-packed boxes were full of snacks, beanie babies, toiletries, and handwritten Christmas cards and sent to over 2,000 soldiers.

This year they’re asking people to bring in items like personal sanitary items, popcorn, chewing gum and Ziploc bags.

If you would like to help pack, sign Christmas cards, or donate, the post is holding an annual event on November 25 and December 2 at the VFW Auxiliary #1443 at 829 15th Street in Clarkston from 2:00 to 6:00PM.
