(KSL News) An Orem woman is making the holidays a bit sweeter for U.S. Army troops stationed in Iraq.
Over the past eight months, Denise DeVynck collected items such as hand warmers, socks, personal hygiene products, homemade treats, and handmade cards.
Several local businesses and schools and people from around the country donated items or wrote letters of support to be included in the packages.
Today 150 boxes were shipped out to the soldiers in hopes of arriving in time for the holidays.
