Community contributes to "Operation Christmas Card" for soldiers

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. Veteran's Day is approaching and Businesses around town are providing a way for the community to help our troops. It's a gift giving service for our men and women in arms called "Operation Christmas Card."

Various locations around the North Platte area are hosting the drive.

Employees of Great Western Bank and their customers have been finding ways to contribute. With a helpful list of items next to the box, passerbys can glance at the list for gift ideas.

Great Western Bank's Judy Leitner and Rebecca Hall say their employees have enjoyed participating.

The boxes are located at Nebraskaland National Bank at the Downtown and Westfield branches. Also, Great Western Bank, and the Prairie Arts Center in North Platte.
