The Summit Hill fifth-graders who were collecting packages for troops overseas have some great news to report: Mission complete!
The children raised more than $600 and the community gave generously. Students filled more than 150 care packages for troops in Afghanistan stuffed with high-quality, tasty items for the service men and women.
In addition, American Legion Post 201 sent off an extra 80 packages in the name of the school.
A huge thank you goes out to the many people involved in the project: Susan Lea, Cari Bowers, Barbara Sanders, Paula Roland, Wendi Behrmann Barber, Aimee Jackson, City of Milton Fire Department, Atlanta Fitness, Starbucks, Crabapple Orthodontics, Nail Dynasty, Alpine Bakery, Moe's, The Brace Place, Arbor/Terrace Assisted Living, Crabapple Senior Center, Cafe Efendi, American Legion Post 201, Menchie's, Brownie Troop #11744, Brooklyn Joe's, Walmart and Target.
