SC volunteers work on dolls for deployed military

Posted: Updated:

Volunteers are gathering to build and decorate anti-stress "Dang-It Dolls" for military servicemen and women.

Volunteers were needed to stuff and decorate the dolls. Davis says she gave the tiny dolls their nickname after she made some for a family member and his deployed buddies.

Since 2005, the nonprofit organization has shipped about 100,000 of the tiny dolls all over the world and to stateside military installations.

Davis says Lodge members are preparing a hot dog lunch for the volunteers.

    In some ways, political campaigning has gone to the dogs in South Carolina. With dogs in almost half of American homes, a number of South Carolina politicians feature their pet dogs in television ads, on websites and on Facebook pages.
