Hemby Bridge Students Support Troops

Boxes packed and ready to ship to the Troops in Afghanistan

In February, our PTO announced a service project called “Care Packages for Our Troops”. Each day students were asked to bring in items from a different theme. The five daily themes were… Keep Them Clean! Keep Them Fed! Keep Them Happy! Keep Them Healthy! and To Show Them Love! And boy, did we show them love!

Our goal was to collect enough money and items to send 26 packages. We surpassed this goal and sent 29 packages to a Marine unit in Afghanistan. This project was particularly special because one of these Marines is a former Hemby Bridge student. Thank you, Hemby Bridge, for showing them how much we care!
