e-Connections Post H.W. Harkness

For the sixth year, students at H.W. Harkness Elementary School collected items such as DVDs, playing cards, disposable cameras and hand sanitizer for donation to US troops.

The sixth graders also collected Beanie Babies for military personnel and wrote personal letters to those serving in the armed forces. Overall, the students collected 1,748 items for the troops.

The ongoing outreach teaches students compassion, community service and appreciation for military troops.
