The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans is seeking donations of stockings to be stuffed with goodies and given to the children of military families.

Stockings should be 16-18 inches long and can be placed in a box at any local Erbert and Gerbert's sandwich shop.

Distribution of the stockings, for each child in the household of service members or veterans, is Dec. 20 from 6-8 p.m. at VFW Post 137, 2023 W. Michigan St., Duluth.

Preregistration isn't required, but those interested in receiving stockings will need to bring proof of military service.
