Hillside Middle School- Care Packages for the Troops

Posted By: Jennifer Lawson (July 8, 2018)
Every year, my students collect items to send to the Troops stationed overseas. We send care packages 4-5 times throughout the school year along with cards and letters to let the Troops know that we are thinking of them. We have sent hundreds of packages over the last ten years. Some of the funds have come from various fundraisers or my husband and I have paid for the shipping ourselves. If we were selected for the Summer of Sharing, the funds would go directly to paying the cost of the shipping, ensuring that we could continue to support our Troops.
