Support Our Troops drive calls for donations

This week, Lake Park is hosting a service drive for U.S. troops.

Students can bring donations to their first hour course through Friday. The drive is for Operation Support Our Troops–America, an organization that sends care packages to serving members of the Armed Forces overseas. For specifics on what kinds of items are most needed or appreciated, see this list.

“Having been on the receiving end of one of these packages, I can honestly state they are appreciated and do bring a big break in the monotony,” said National Guard Sgt. Seth Hible, teacher and drive liason.

East and West Campuses are competing to see which first hour classroom brings in the most donations. The winners get a breakfast.
