Some Eastern Kentuckians are trying to make the holidays a little better for some soldiers serving overseas. A golf tournament hosted Saturday morning at Hazard Country Club helped raise money to send care packages.

Family and friends of National Guard Soldier Bruce Fields say a lot of families in Eastern Kentucky can't always afford to send their loved ones supplies. They say with support from the community, they want to help the ones that can't and remind the soldiers how much they're missed.

Betty Fields, Bruce Fields mother says, “I’m very proud of my son and he makes a big sacrifice and I miss him and it breaks my heart that he's away from his daughter while she's growing up.”

If you would like to donate to the effort, you can call Betty’s Kitchen at 606-436-5320.

    why even bother saying something like that especially when its a lie. People like you just try and take all the good out of everything. what they did was a great thing drunk or not so get off ur soap box. If u cant say anything nice keep ur mouth shut!!!
