5th grade students at Sope creek completed a service project today with Project Mail Call. Our students collected supplies for members of our military stationed all over the world.
A local, retired Navy officer, Ed Ettel, runs a charity called Operation Mail Call. He and his wife, Mary, collect donated supplies such as hygiene items, food/treats, magazines, etc. which they box up and send out to military bases all over the world. The troops who receive these boxes are so grateful to have much needed “luxuries” from home.
In addition to donating supplies, each student wrote a letter to the troops thanking them for the sacrifices they are making and to encourage them as they are serving away from their homes and families.
