Weston students raise over $1,000 for Desert Angels
To the Editor:
I would like to thank Weston Elementary School students and teachers for their "Pennies for Postage" fundraiser in support of the Desert Angels.
Desert Angel Louis Downs and I are amazed that the students were able to raise $1,109.26. Our soldiers will be so proud of you.
We've included a picture of the sheet you signed, along with a note about the school's fundraiser in several of the boxes we packed.
An extra-special thanks to Beth Rice, who is currently home on leave and was able to join us for the packing party. She shared some of her experiences abroad and what it means to be on the receiving end of one of our "miracle boxes." They do make a difference to all who receive them, she said.
Thank you to everyone who donated items to pack, for the cash donations, and to all those who helped pack the boxes. Wishing a sincere thanks to all who support this effort on behalf of our troops.
