LeMars Community High School and Support Siouxland Soldiers team up to Support the Troops!

DSCF3778Huge “Shout-out and Thank You” to the Students, Student Council and Staff of LeMars Community High School for Supporting our Deployed Troops, Veterans and Military Families! We Salute You!

From September 30 to October 18, 2013, Le Mars Community Student Council ran a food drive for Support Siouxland Soldiers. Students brought in food items and/or donated money to the cause. In addition, student council members contacted local businesses for monetary donations to purchase needed items and to help pay for shipping. Boxes were also setup at both Fareway and Hy-Vee for people to drop off food items.

The high school library sponsored a Fun Friday to support the soldiers as well. Students that donated two food items or $2 to Support Siouxland Soldiers were able to play board games, card games, computer games or just sit and visit with friends during that study hall. In addition, teachers gave extra incentives to students to bring in items. The results were astounding! Student council members, with help of teachers Mark and Judy Zeka, packed 18 care packages for Siouxland Soldiers that are currently deployed. In addition, they collected enough food and personal items (such as powder, deodorant, hand wash, etc). to fill two vans with the seats folded down! These items will be used for SSS’ Food for Veterans program and a Holiday Care Pack. LCHS Student Council quadrupled last year’s effort. This is the largest donation of items ever collected for Support Siouxland Soldiers.

In addition, student council president, AJ Schroeder and senior member Ally Mullally presented Support Siouxland Soldiers with a check for $674 to purchase needed items. Special thanks go to the Hy-Vee, Fareway, and many local businesses for their support. If you want to know (Amy) this is what goes in each box: handful of slim jims and at least 2 large packages of jerky at least 2 packages of tuna or salmon 2-4 jif-to-go peanut butter numerous small packages of crackers and cookies handfuls of granola/snack bars 2-4 pudding cups (we had over 500 of these donated) ramen noodles microwaveable mac and cheese 2-4 microwaveable popcorn microwaveable soup handfuls of powdered drink mixes handfuls of bags of fruit snacks (had over 500 boxes of these) oatmeal packets single servings of trail mix, peanuts, sunflower seeds etc package of baby wipes (in Ziploc bags — 2 pkgs handwarmers, 1 deodorant, Gold Bond foot powder, hand sanitizer, and 4 individual hand wipes)- Hard candies were then poured on top to fill in the “holes” In addition to all of that (we had enough of everything except jerky to fill 32 boxes — would have had enough jerky but we put 2 big pkgs in each), we collected over 400 boxes of mac and cheese, 200 boxes of hamburger helper, a huge amount of tuna, soups, veggies, cereals, pasta, fruit that went to the Food for Veterans Program. F for V will distribute Nov. 11 to Veterans and we hope to have students able to go down and help distribute.
