NMS Supports Our Soldiers!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In our 6th grade social studies classes, we have discussed the impact of the terrorist attacks on the United States in 2001. One positive response from these horrible attacks was the numerous enlistments in the military. Current US soldiers who are deployed and fighting for our country face many daily challenges. As a class, we have discussed ways to show our appreciation to US troops. As a follow-up to this class discussion, we would like to practice showing philanthropy through acts of kindness by shipping care packages to troops currently serving overseas.

The NMS 6th grade social studies teachers would like to send care packages to troops stationed overseas. For the next two weeks (September 18-29), we will be collecting items to create care packages to send. We will be sending the supplies through our local Elkhart County chapter of the national organization called The Hugs Project. Here are some items we would like to collect:

  • toothbrushes body wash (4-12oz.)
  • toothpaste
  • band-aids
  • deodorant (solid stick)
  • bar soap
  • unscented baby wipes
  • crossword puzzles
  • lip balm body lotion (4-12oz.)
  • shampoo (4-12oz.)
  • Q-tips
  • socks - black, white, tan, army green (above ankle/logo free)

  • To accomplish our goal, we are asking each student to bring in any of these items to his/her social studies classroom by September 29. If you would prefer to send in a monetary donation, we will use the money to purchase gift cards for The Hugs Project to purchase additional supplies for the care packages.

    Thank you for your consideration of our service learning project. If you have questions or if you would like more information, please contact your child’s social studies teacher or visit The Hugs Project website at www.thehugsproject.com.
    We are excited to work with your child to implement this program!

    Thank you!
