Soldier Santas "Stuff the Bus"

With Halloween right around the corner, you might think it would be a little early to start thinking about Christmas gifts.

But, that's just what some soldiers at Camp Shelby are doing.

In fact, several soldiers from the post are hoping you will help them help needy children this Christmas season.

The soldiers are members of the 87th Training Support Division and they are trying to fill an Army bus with toys and clothes...which will be turned over to the Salvation Army, who will in turn, distribute the gifts at Christmas.

This is the first of three weekends the "Stuff the Bus" toy drive will be conducted at local retailers.
