BALTIMORE (WJZ) — On this holiday, those who served our country are getting some holiday cheer.
Volunteers pass out hundreds of gift bags to veterans in the hospital.

Christmas comes a little early at the Baltimore VA. Volunteers spreading holiday cheer are Gold Star Mothers, handing out backpacks.
“We are able to give lovely gifts to our inpatients to hopefully make their stay a little better during the holidays, thanks to the generous donations of many individuals and organizations,” says one volunteer.
“Even though you are here at the hospital, you are surrounded by people who really care about you,” says another volunteer.
