'Cell Phones for Soldiers' sought
Forestville Central School and Community are participating in the "Cell Phones for Soldiers" 2012 Make a Difference Day project.
"Cell Phones for Soldiers" is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans.
"Cell Phones for Soldiers" started as a small way to show appreciation for the men and women who have sacrificed the day-to-day contact with their own families to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.
If any community members are interested in participating in this project, there is a box in the front foyer of the elementary school, a box in the high school office, and a box in the Forestville Post Office to put them in. The school will collect phones until Nov. 14.
Contact Carol McPeak-McDonald or Brenda Schneider at 965-2742 for further information.
