Your Help Is Needed! 

All CCSD schools are helping with a community service project sponsored by The Chatham American Legion Auxiliary. Donations are needed for military care packages to be sent to soldiers overseas as part of Operation Adopt a Soldier, an organization located in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. They do a wonderful job throughout the year sending care packages to our deployed military personnel. This is something our schools have helped with in the past and are continuing to support this year. 

The care packages mean a lot to our soldiers, especially around the holidays, and they appreciate your thoughtfulness!  Some suggested items to donate include: 

  • snacks 
  • gum 
  • drink mixes 
  • dry soup mix 
  • instant coffee 
  • pens 
  • pencils 
  • notebooks 
  • hand lotion 
  • journals 
  • toothpaste
  • toothbrushes
  • hard candy
  • trail mix
  • snack tuna
  • cookies 
  • microwave meals
  • energy bars 
  • chapstick 
  • wet wipes
  • bar soap
  • Q-tips
  • shampoo
  • razors
  • all occasion cards
  • band-aids
  • AA and AAA batteries 

If you would like to write a note or include a drawing, that is also encouraged! 

Please help by bringing in your donation to any of schools by November 19. Thank you very much!
