SHEFFIELD, AL (WAFF) -

Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Sheffield will be chipping into make some veterans' Christmas a little brighter – and they need your help.

Volunteers will be making gift bags to take to the VA Hospital in Tuscaloosa on Dec. 15. The VFW post is asking for donations of candy, treats and personal hygiene items. Volunteers will be making 250 bags in order for everyone to get one. All candy and snacks need to be sugar-free in case the recipient is diabetic.

Gift bags will be made on Dec. 14 at the VFW post, located at 419 Raleigh Avenue in Sheffield. Any help would be appreciated, especially since donations have been slim this time around.

All who wish to donate but need the items to be picked up are encouraged to call Michelle Elliott at 256-460-5033 or the VFW at 256-381-7446, Tuesday through Sunday after 1 p.m.
