Kindergarten Class Sends Letters

Major Heath Harriel is in the United States Army and is stationed in Bagram, Afghanistan.  He is the grandson of a former teacher PLE teacher, Mrs. Ruth Harriel.  When I contacted his wife to get his address to send him something, she said that he had 16 men in his unit and that many of them never get anythiing from home.  She suggested that our class adopt them and send a package for all the men.  She suggested that we send gold bond powder, toothbrushes, toothpaste, slim jims, pop tarts, hard candy, and letters from the students.  Each student colored a paper soldier and wrote a letter. The letter thanked the soldiers for keeping us safe. 
We sent these in the package with the snacks and supplies. Our class collected a 35 pound box.  Mrs. Cindy Sutfin's first grade class donated the cost of postage which was $50.  The men also received a package from Belle Chaise High School where my daughter, Nicole Hariel teaches. So, it really was a joint effort in providing some necessities and snacks for the soldiers.
