In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School first-graders in Stacy Iberger’s class helped to bring the comforts of home to those serving the nation. The students created 20 shipping boxes full of care packages for soldiers serving oversees – including the son of a school employee serving in South Korea and the sister of a student who is serving stateside.

Surrounded by local veterans, family members and officials, the students penned original messages of thanks before filling colorfully decorated brown paper lunch bags with non-perishable food items, personal care packages and playing cards.
