Councilman Bill Lusk, a Navy Seabee during Vietnam, and Mayor Joe Lockwood took part in Summit Hill Elementary’s 5th grade service project assembly March 7 to honor veterans and current troops.
The fifth graders are collecting items to send to soldiers in Afghanistan, and to illustrate who their work would benefit, veterans from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam joined currently enlisted servicemen in speaking to the children about their experiences.
As part of their service project, students are collecting items for care packages, and community members can help with donations. Organizers are looking for magazines, books, CDs, DVDs and other small items soldiers can use to make their experience in war time more comfortable.
If you would like to help donate any of these items or make a monetary donation, please contact Paula Roland at 678-576-6942 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
