CC!KC Students Send Holiday Cheer to Our Troops

In the next couple weeks troops in Afghanistan will be receiving cards, candy and other goods from CC!KC students. As part of the November 11th Character Counts lesson “count your blessings”, students in many Elementary school classes worked with their Character Coaches to make cards and gather small gifts for our troops. 

Crystal Killen, a Character Coach and Dixon Valve employee, organized the creation of a special addition to help add a bit of holiday cheer to the regular care package she and other Dixon Valve employees send to their colleague, James Bianco, who is currently stationed in Afghanistan. In the next care package James receives he will find the pictured basket full of cards and well wishes from our Kent County students for him to enjoy and share with fellow troops.

Thank you CC!KC students for helping to spread holiday cheer to those of us who won’t be able to make it home for the holidays. This time of year we are often reminded that the small things we do for others are the things that can make a big difference.
