Boatsie’s Boxes is once again sending love and cheer to deployed men and women in the United States Military.

Boatsie’s Boxes is a non profit, charitable organization dedicated to supporting our troops when they are far from home.

The Wheeling Scottish Rite has been helping with filling the Christmas stockings. They’re filled with dried goods and toiletries and get ship them overseas to our troops this holiday season.

Brad Hufeld, the personal representative for Wheeling Scottish Rite, says they enjoy doing this every year. “Because we want to make sure the veterans have a merry Christmas. It’s just something we felt was a good thing to do to help them with the veterans all over the world because so many people are not home for the holidays.”

This Saturday, the stockings will be packaged up and shipped off at the National Guard armory at the Wheeling Ohio County Airport.
