Stockings and hats and bags! Oh My!
Do you love to sew? Do you love to use your crafting skills to show love and support to others? Whether you are an individual or you belong to a crafting circle or quilting guild, we need your skills.
Every Christmas, we ship handmade Christmas stockings to our troops (in 2012, Operation Shoebox shipped 25,385 stockings).
Year round, we receive heartfelt thanks for the handknit and crocheted caps that make their way into care packages; these especially make a difference in regions where temperatures drop at night.

Ditty Bags are used by members of the armed forces to carry small items – continue to be a practical gift as well.
