TULSA, Oklahoma -- A Tulsa group is trying to brighten Christmas for military families in need.

Volunteers with the Tulsa 912 Project are collecting coins, cash and coats. They were inspired by the book Christmas Jars, which encourages random acts of kindness.

So, the 912 Project is taking all the money it raises and donating it to the Oklahoma Army National Guard's program for families in need.

"First off, we love our service men and women and we want to help their families as they serve us. We want to help by serving their families," said Ronda Vuillemont-Smith, president of the Tulsa 912 Project.

As for the coats it's collecting, they'll be donated to Trav's Coats for Kids. 

You still have time to help.  Just bring your coins, cash or coats to Mardel at 71st and Mingo on Saturday, December 4, 2010. Volunteers with the 912 Project will be set up in parking lot from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
