Posting some holiday cheer

Hilton Head Island cookie lady Jeanette Cram and her volunteer army of "crumbs" were hard at work Wednesday, packing and mailing 247 boxes full of 1,602 dozen home-made cookies and other goodies to soldiers deployed around the world as part their "Treat the Troops" effort. Here, volunteers Nadyne Ulicny, front, and Barbara Burke carry boxes to the postal delivery van. Wednesday's session was the group's year-end Christmas-themed "Operation Holiday Cheer" in which the outgoing care packages contain holiday items in addition to cookies. The group will take a break in December before resuming its monthly shipments in January.

Many groups and individuals keep the troops in mind year round and many more step in to help as the holidays near. A Hilton Head Island group keeps the goodies going all year.
