The National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a service project called Miracle Boxes. Miracle Boxes are care packages for our troops serving overseas. They are collecting individual items until Friday, May 17th and will package them up at the end of the collection period to send them off to our service men and women.
Miracle Boxes is a Michigan-based program run by Desert Angels. Their Miracle Box program got it’s name in honor of the son of Judy Miracle, retired Everest Academy Middle School Teacher. Here is a quote from the Desert Angel’s site: “As of Oct. 2007 we have now named the boxes we send “Miracle Boxes” in honor of Ortonville, Michigan’s fallen hero, PFC Joseph A. Miracle, US Army Airborne of the 173rd. Joseph was in Afghanistan only 35 days when he gave his life defending his unit.”
Collection boxes are located in every building. Items needed are:
New White Socks
Pocket Food/Snacks (No Chocolate – it melts)
Money for postage
