Operation North State Collection
Gift boxes filled with holiday treats are headed to troops from North Carolina who are serving overseas.
Operation North State was in Asheville Sunday, collecting candy donated by Walgreens customers for their Christmas Box Project. Land of Sky Regional Council also dropped-off toiletries that were donated.
Everything collected will be placed in gift boxes and shipped abroad. Organizers say they want to make sure Tar Heel soldiers have a special holiday.
Operation North State also wants people to recommend soldiers to receive gift boxes.
