“As the holiday season begins, we remember all our brave men and women serving overseas. Honored to join @SecondLady at the @RedCross this morning to make comfort kits for our troops currently deployed. Thank you for your service!”

At the event, she also took the time to give a speech. She said the comfort packs were “one small way that we can say thank you and honor the sacrifices that members of the military make year-round.”


She also added:

“Our prayers remain with all those serving overseas and for the families who wait for them to come home.”


Besides Pence, the first lady was also joined by cabinet secretaries’ spouses, military families, Elizabeth Dole, and other volunteers. They all assisted in assembling the packages.

Some of the items included in the kits were snacks such as popcorn and peanuts, playing cards, and toiletries. The toiletries comprised of bottles of hand soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and tissues.


The items will be sent to the troops who are currently deployed in Iraq, Poland, Djibouti, and Kuwait. It’s a small reminder for the brave soldiers that they’re missed and honored by their families.

This week, Trump shared the festive spirit by revealing the Christmas decorations at the White House. This year's theme is "American Treasures."

The decorations included Be Best ornaments and red Christmas trees.
