Tess passing out items

Hand In Hand Pt

Children from Hand In Hand Early Care & Education Center in Marion, IA have spent the last few weeks collecting items for soldiers who will be spending the holidays away from home. They spent their day off of school sorting through numerous bags of donated items and boxing them off. Overall 50 boxes were packed up and will be shipped off. The original plan was to pack up seven care packages for soldiers related to Hand In Hand families. With the generous donations, they were able to send over many more that will go to soldiers who may not receive care packages.
