The holidays can be hard for military families especially when one spouse is away on deployment.

Jacksonville McDonald's locations partnered with Support Military Spouses in an effort to help ease the stress.

The event was held at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Complex Recreation Center. This year, the partnership was able to double the amount of families they helped.

More than 1,000 military moms, dads and children received goody bags at the event.

Event volunteers said these gifts might be only ones children are able to receive this year. That's largely due to families losing their homes and belongings during Hurricane Florence.

NewsChannel 12's Christina Thompson was at the event. Watch the video to see the heartwarming moment.
