The following information was taken from the Seymour school district’s Facebook page.
The Seymour Middle School sixth grade social studies classes, led by Ashley Castaldi and Chris Alcutt, sponsored a care package drive to collect items such as toiletries, snacks, and K-9 supplies for soldiers who are currently deployed overseas.
The purpose of this drive was to promote good citizenship, volunteerism, and to participate in an activity that promotes social awareness.
This activity was centered on the celebration of veterans.
The students were able to understand what sacrifices soldiers make, such as not having access to everyday items that they may take for granted.
The care packages were sent to sixth-grade teacher Dina Garrow’s brother-in-law’s unit currently stationed in Afghanistan.
