Christmas coming soon to soldiers serving overseas

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - More than 235 stockings are filling the HIS radio studios off of Abercorn Street. The station has been gathering them over the past month and many of them were handmade by listeners.

The stockings are stuffed full of special treats and items that soldiers may need like beef jerky, toiletries, plus puzzles and games.

"It's wonderful to see the community of listeners we have. We call them the most generous, giving listeners in the world. Give back to the soldiers who give back so much to our country and our freedom here in America," said Jody Robinson, area coordinator at HIS Radio 91.9. 

The stockings will go to local soldiers still stationed overseas during the holidays.
