Highlander sixth graders with LH Military Moms and Exchange Club members

Sixth graders at Highlander School paired up with Lake Highlands Military Moms and the Exchange Club to ensure that soldiers from our neighborhood will enjoy a Merry Christmas. The students collected donations of toiletries, snacks, magazines, Christmas decorations and more and packed the items in assembly-line fashion before the Thanksgiving break. The annual service project, anxiously awaited by students each year, resulted in 33 full boxes.

The Exchange Club paid to mail the packages to 11 soldiers with LH ties, inviting those recipients to share with others serving alongside them. Godspeed, guys.
