Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School second grade students in Stacy Iberger’s class helped to show gratitude for the troops serving overseas in honor of Memorial Day and Military Appreciation Month this May.

Through the generosity of the class’s families, the students collected hundreds of toiletry items, snacks and a variety of games and used those donations to create care packages for soldiers. With the help of local veterans, Councilwoman Jane Bonner, district administrators and volunteers, the students made enough care packages to fill 22 large boxes of packages. Each package included a mixture of the donated items as well as a hand-written thank-you letter from the students. 

The care packages were sent to the soldiers in honor of Staff Sgt. Louis Bonacasa, who was killed in action several years ago and is the father of a current student in Ms. Iberger’s class.
