CHAMPAIGN -- People are working to send something special to troops overseas. Volunteers for Operation Santa met at the Champaign County Extension Office Sunday. They're preparing holiday gifts for people serving in the Armed Forces around the globe.

Socks, candy and cards are just a few donated items which will be stuffed into stockings. High school senior, Maggie Maxstadt says it's a creative way for her to say "thank you."

Operation Santa made more than 1,000 stockings and almost 3,000 cards last year. They hope to break that record this holiday season.
