Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- All over Henderson and Boulder City there are giant donation barrels people can fill with items to send to troops serving our country.
It's an effort spearheaded by Blue Star Moms of Nevada.
Chere Pedersen is the chapter president. Last year, her group sent more than 1500 packages.
"I am very, very proud that my son serves and protects this country. I believe in what he's doing. And he knows he's making a difference."
If you have a loved one serving our nation and you want them to get a package, contact Blue Star Moms at (702) 275-5569.
This Friday and Saturday, Blue Star Moms are holding a yard sale to cover shipping costs.
If you'd like to swing by, the address is 2246 Windsor Drive in Henderson.
Call Chere at (702) 275-5569 for more information.
