Spreading Christmas Cheer

It’s that time of year again.  The holiday season is filled with Christmas festivities, traditions and family gatherings. But for many of our servicemen and women, they will be spending the holidays very far from home and their loved ones.

 

Thankfully, the Warrior House of WNY puts together stockings full of items to send to those serving overseas. Several boxes of the items were collected to send to our brave men and women who will not make it home for the holidays. 

The Warrior House of WNY is a veterans service organization and farm located in Orleans and Niagara Counties.  Their mission is to offer direct support for wounded veterans, host hunting trips, fishing expeditions, temporary housing for veterans and a Christmas gift distribution program that provides gifts for the children of military service personnel and military personnel.   

 

Medina CSD’s Oak Orchard Elementary School staff and students were more than happy to collect items to add to these stockings and make the holidays brighter for those who are serving our country. Thank you to everyone who donated and embracing what the holidays are about!
