Thank you everyone that contributed to our Treats for Troops candy drive. We collected over 170 pounds of candy that will be packed and mailed to our troops overseas. Shout out to the Choir department for collecting the most of any music group. I also received numerous emails from students that wanted to help with making care packages. Thank you for your generosity. The picture of the candy represents about 20% of the candy collected and special thanks to Colin Baumberger and Lily Talley from Marching Band that volunteered at Packages for Patriots.
