(WICHITA, Kan.) — There are more than 900 boxes, all filled with a little piece of home in them for troops overseas. The boxes are part of "Christmas in a Box," a program to send the troops a care packages for the holidays organized by KFDI.
"The whole thought of someone going through Christmas without even a letter, a box, or something from home just really broke my heart," said Kellie Michaels who's is one of the organizers of "Christmas in a Box."
The boxes are filled with games, snacks and toiletries.
The program is funded entirely by donations. With 950 boxes going out, there's only enough money for about 700 of them to be shipped.
"I have no doubt that the money is going to finish coming in," said Beverlee Brannigan, KFDI's Operations Manager. "The service men and women, on Christmas Day, or maybe a few days before, are going to know that Wichita loves them."
