WCES Fifth Grade Service Project:

Fifth grade students at Wards Creek are gathering items and organizing care packages to send to soldiers of WCES military families we currently have serving overseas in Afghanistan and Jordan.  Soldiers love getting treats from back home, but remember these treats need to be non-perishable and easily portable.  We have compiled a list of suggestions.  The care packages will be sent during the first two weeks of February, so all donations need to be turned in by January 31. 

  • Snack bars / Energy bars
  • Small hard individually wrapped candy (no chocolate)
  • Cheese crackers
  • Gum
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Trail mix
  • Gummies
  • Flavored water packets / Gatorade flavor packets
  • Beef Jerky
  • Baby Wipes
  • Lip Balm / Chapstick
  • Hand Lotions
  • Fingernail clippers
  • Card games / any small game for entertainment

*Thank you for helping us send some love to a soldier overseas.*
