Earlier this month, Foxborough Regional Charer School first graders made and sent holiday greeting cards to veterans, service members in hospital and overseas as part of the American Red Cross program, "Holiday Mail for Heroes."
Mrs. Charlette's class of first graders viewed a video from the American Red Cross about the Holiday Mail for Heroes program and learned that making and sending these greeting cards to our military heroes would make each recipient's day a "little brighter."
Each student, according to FRCS, enjoyed making colorful cards, which were then sent to the American Red Cross to sort, distribute and send the cards overseas.
"The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome 'touch of home' for the troops during the holiday season," FRCS said on its website.
