Students at Fairgrieve Elementary raised $178 for the Wounded Warrior Project as part of a school fundraiser.
The project’s purpose is to honor and empower injured service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness or wound on or after September 11.
The Wounded Warrior Project also provides veterans with programs and services to meet their needs.
Fairgrieve students wore camouflage to school and were asked to bring in change to collect for the soldiers.
It is an organization near and dear to Principal Jean Ciesla’s heart as her son is a member of the United States Air Force.
