Farmingdale High School Students Create Care Packages for Troops
Farmingdale High School students in the Varsity Leaders Club and Italian Honor Society recently created care packages to support United States military troops deployed overseas. Working with the St. William the Abbott church in Seaford, students collected hundreds of items for troops. Students packed the care packages with handwritten letters thanking troops for their service, as well as popular magazines, hot chocolate mix, popcorn, crackers, potato chips, candy, coffee, socks, cans of soup, gloves and hats.
This collaboration was part of a Farmingdale School District initiative to help students give back and reflect on the sacrifices of deployed American troops. Since the inception of this initiative, Farmingdale students have sent more than 400 boxes to United States servicemen and women.
