District Five Students Send Holiday Cards To Veterans

vets Veterans, and active duty military members, across the United States and the world received an extra dose of holiday cheer this Christmas, thanks to students in District Five!
 
In partnership with local members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, District Five schools asked their students, teachers, and families to create Christmas cards to bring a smile to veterans who might really need it during this time of year.  District Five schools stepped up in a big way, as every school in the District participated, and turned in boxes and boxes of cards!
 
Members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart were able to pick up thousands of cards from the District Five administrative office just before Thanksgiving, with the plan to deliver them to veterans homes and other institutions before Christmas.vets
