Operation Shoebox 2010 - Monday, February 15, 2010

Students at Clear Lake City Elementary School got into the Valentine's Day spirit again this year and collected donations for care packages to be sent to the troops deployed overseas.

In conjunction with the non-profit organization HOME - Help Our Military Endure, and with the 5th grade Student Council spearheading the event, the students collected $91.00 and 90 shoeboxes of items such as paper and pencils, games, puzzle books, personal hygiene items, candy, and baby wipes. These items might not be everyone's idea of a Valentine's Day gift, but to the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, they're much appreciated in an area lacking even the most basic supplies.

The objective is to give them a little piece of home and show we support them and appreciate what they are doing. No soldier should walk away from a mail call with nothing.

In addition, tucked inside the care packages the students created beautiful cards with heartfelt messages hoping to brighten a lonely soldier's day.
