WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Every year April is recognized as the month of the Military Child.
This year, Operation Hug-a-Hero is planning to give away 1,000 "Daddy (or mommy) Dolls" during the month to military families in need.
The dolls are a pillow that has a full length picture of the parent that is taken at their deployment location. Inside, a personalized voice message reminds children that they are loved.
The dolls also help children remember what their parent looks like and keeps them a part of their daily routine.
To order a Hug-a-Hero doll, visit their website by clicking here.
