Those of us that have school aged children are well aware of what the schools need. With the budget cuts taking place in the California school system the money is tight for all teachers of all subjects. Gone are the days you sort of just showed up to school with a cigar book for your crayons, now you have to go to Target or Walmart with a dad gum list every year.
Now Derek is in home economics now and they have started to cook. He just recently brought a list of things his class needs in order for them cook or the teacher is asking for gift cards to local grocery stores.
What I am saying is chances are you live near a school or know a child in school. If you're in the mood to share this holiday season a gift card or spare cash is just the thing every school and teacher needs.
Also while making out your Christmas cards this year take a moment and send on to this address. Let a Soldier know you're thinking of them and and thank them.
