Thanks to community members from Detroit Lakes to Fargo, 85 stockings are being sent to troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Kosovo.


Last year, at Veterans Day time, David-Donehower Funeral Home's Shawn Nygaard suggested asking the community to stuff the stockings for troops. They collected about 20-25.

The military provides a list of items soldiers need like beef jerky, video games, batteries, sunflower seeds, etc.
