Operation Soldiers Christmas 2021.jpg

Items were recently collected for soldiers’ personal use during Kindred Communication’s “Operation Soldiers Christmas.”

HUNTINGTON — American soldiers stationed around the world will once again benefit from the generosity of Tri-State residents thanks to the thousands of items collected for their personal use during the fourth edition of Kindred Communication’s “Operation Soldiers Christmas.”

Organized and operated by Huntington-based Kindred Communications, boxes were filled during the past month at stores throughout the area. Some of the items collected include snack foods, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving supplies, shirts, socks, puzzle books, candies and sanitary wipes. The items are now headed to Military Missions, based in Lexington, Kentucky.

Military Missions exists to support and honor deployed military personnel by sending care packages year-round as an expression of appreciation and gratitude. It ships donated items four times each year in what the group calls “Operation Send.”
