Students and Veterans Are Working Together For Holiday Cheer
Special to the Lehigh Acres Gazette
Veterans Club of America, Post #1 in Fort Myers, joined forces with three local charter schools (Palm Acres Charter High School, City of Palms Charter High School & Northern Palms Charter High School) to collect and sign Christmas cards to send to the United States Troops serving overseas this holiday season.
Last year it was our first time and we collected 742 cards. This year the three schools along with the VCA Post #1 on San Carlos Blvd near the beach have revved it up trifold and we have collected over 2,200-holiday cards that will be sent over to the various military groups with season greetings and thank you for your courageous spirit in fighting for our freedom.
“As a teacher and Air Force Veteran myself, I am very proud of my students and my members for all the hard work that we have accomplished”, said Robin Perkins
