Stockings for Troops


A huge thank you to our community, church members, local merchants, Black Bear 4-H Club and the American Legion for their generous donations. We sent 258 pounds of care and comfort items, including snacks, toiletries, CDs, DVDs, Christmas stockings (many hand sewn) and personalized holiday greeting cards.

We were also able to contribute funds for overseas shipping to the troops. Santa’s elves would be so very proud of our community!

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
