Key Club Collects Donations for Soliders
Key Club sponsored a donation fund called Items for Soldiers where students brought necessary items for soldiers stationed overseas. The second block class who brought the most items won an ice cream party.
English teacher Lauren Dill’s class won the contest bringing a box full of items like wet wipes, cotton swabs, and cookies. Mrs. Dill’s brother-in-law was deployed in Afghanistan four times since 9/11 so she realized what this donations will mean to the soldiers.
“I’m proud of my students of their willingness to help others,” Mrs. Dill said, “Seeing them caring about soldiers gives me joy.”
Key club sent the items with letters students wrote to soldiers in a care package.
“We just wanted to show support for troops that are stationed at other countries because they don’t get all things that they would normally get,” Key Club sponsor Shelley Burkett said, “We thought it was nice to send [the troops] things they would enjoy and show people do care.”
