Bear Canyon Elementary decided to donate their Halloween candy to our troops. Little did they know that it will be 453 pounds of candy! Great job Bear Canyon!
"Dear Bear Canyon Elementary School Students,
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all of you kids, parents, and faculty for remembering those serving our country during this special time of year. Your support of the men and women serving in uniform speaks highly of your character and values. It is amazing to know how many great people are out there who care about our Soldiers.
I would like to extend my appreciation for the large boxes of candy and picture notes we received. Your generosity and well wishes have lifted our spirits at a time when we’re away from our Family and friends this holiday season. It makes us proud to know that our fellow Americans care so much about us and that our sacrifices are not forgotten.
Below is a picture of some of the Soldiers and Coalition partners that serve in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Just so you know, all of them enjoyed and appreciated your boxes. Thank you!"
