Filling Boxes of Love

JPE Filling Boxes of Love
John Pearl Elementary School students and staff recently worked to bring some holiday cheer to the servicemen and women serving the nation overseas.

Through the school community’s generosity, John Pearl collected enough “Boxes of Love” filled with nonperishable donations such as toothbrushes, card games and cereal boxes to send to approximately 50 military personnel. The “Boxes of Love” initiative was coordinated via the Long Island Blue Star Moms in accordance with the school theme, “Hand in Hand Across Our Land.”
