Christmas For Our Troops Gearing up for 10th Year

One local non profit is already working to giving troops overseas a Christmas salute for the 10th year now!
MIDLAND/ODESSA -- One local non profit is already working to giving troops overseas a Christmas salute for the 10th year now!

Christmas for OUR Troops was founded in 2004, and over the past nine years the organization has sent more than 12,000 care pakages to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Growing up I always thought of West Texas as being basically the Permian Basin. When we got involved in trying to support OUR Troops it became obvious West Texans have a huge heart and that West Texas covers a whole lot more country than I ever imagined. When I look at a map it is clear to me that West Texas covers the area from Bangor, Maine to Honolulu, Hawaii and from Anchorage, Alaska to Key West, Florida. The troops that protect OUR freedom do not ask if we are from Andrews, Monahans, McCamey, Odessa or Midland they only care that we are Americans. I guess another way to put it is that we are not hyphenated West Texas-Americans we are Americans and we support ALL OUR Troops, says Founder of Christmas for our Troops, Scott Davis.

Christmas for OUR Troops is run completely through volunteers and is looking for donations to fill the estimated 2,500 care packages the organization plans to send out this year.
