"Operation Iraq-Afghanistan" is supporting the families of service members here on the homefront this year. This week 5,000 Christmas stockings will be stuffed and delivered to military bases around the Puget Sound for children that have a family member serving on the frontlines in Afghanistan.  
 
Operation Iraq-Afghanistan has been supporting military members for the last nine years.
 
"I proudly say that we have sent over 70,000 individual Christmas packages overseas to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq," said Ruth Ann, founder of Operation Iraq-Afghanistan.
 
The organization has seen a lot of young people coming out to volunteer with the project over the years and this year is no exception.
 
"It's worth it to help the families who gave us our freedom," said 14-year old volunteer Shana Litts.
 
"It's the right thing to do and I like helping other people," said 10-year-old volunteer Lance Sather.
 
Operation Iraq-Afghanistan is still looking for stocking stuffer donations. To donate visit www.operationiraq.org.
