When our class was writing letters to the military, my friend had an idea to send even more to the military. She invited a few of our friends to join her. We used the school announcements to ask people to drop donations off at some of the boxes we spread around our school. Even the sixth grade teacher at our school, Mrs. Flood, helped us by sending in tons of donations! Our first collection was very successful and we got many donations. Our second collection was even better! We sent the packages to four different military personnel. We went on the announcements one more time to thank everyone who donated. They were very happy to receive the packages and we were happy to give the military personnel a little taste of home.
