The National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a project to send care packages to soldiers serving overseas, and the entire Everest community is encouraged to participate!

NJHS is collecting donations in boxes in the school lobbies from now until Monday, April 28. Items can also be dropped off to NJHS Advisor Kimberly Roberts in room 125 in the Girl’s School on or before April 16 (the day before Easter break).

In a letter to parents, Mrs. Roberts wrote:

“The care packages are called ‘Miracle Boxes’ in honor of [the late] PFC Joseph A. Miracle, the son of Mrs. Judy Miracle, retired teacher of Everest Academy.”

Items needed include new white socks, “pocket” food and snacks (excluding chocolate), toiletries such as floss, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo (in hotel samples size) and paperback novels.

NJHS is also accepting monetary donations to cover the cost of mailing the items. Cash donations should be given directly to the receptionists, Sue Lowney or Deb Martin.

If you have a family member serving overseas who you would like to receive a “Miracle Box,” send their name and address by Wednesday, April 16 to
