Honoring Those Who Serve: A 'Sweet' Gesture


Honoring Those Who Serve: A 'Sweet' Gesture

As we approach Veterans Day, the CCHS is paying tribute to those who have served or are serving in the US armed forces.

Last week, CCHS Peer Leaders collected candy for deployed service members and veterans.

We are also continuing to collect names of veterans for the Call of Faith & Duty: A Tribute to Veterans.

Supporting Our Troops – a "Sweet" Gesture

Last week, students in Peer Leaders held a Treats for Troops Candy Contest to collect candy for veterans and deployed servicemembers.

The candy is being donated to Soldiers Angels and to the Veterans Outreach Center in Haverhill.

Thank you to Peer Leaders and to the CCHS community for supporting a great cause!

Thank you to Norwood Insurance Agency in Groveland for generously volunteering to ship the candy and also distributing to area veterans services!
