An organization called Sew Much Comfort in Beavercreek, Ohio, is doing its part for injured soldiers all over the country.

More than 1,000 volunteer seamstresses thread their needles to make clothes for injured soldiers. Some 30,000 clothing items were delivered to 100 locations, including the Walter Reed Army hospital, last year alone.

Gary Scott reports from member station WMUB.
