SHOEBOXES for SOLDIERS  

 

            Dear Parent & Students,

 

  Overpark Elementary will once again partner with Baptist Memorial Hospital and Mississippi Project Package for its 6th annual community-based program, Shoeboxes for Soldiers. They are asking our school to provide much-needed supplies for our soldiers overseas. This year marks the 5th year Overpark Elementary has taken part in this event. Last year we donated over 870 shoeboxes to soldiers which earned us 1st out of all the schools that participated. We would like to finish first again this year by donating over 800 boxes. Our donation this year of your care package will take place between October 1, 2014 and October 30, 2014. Schools with the most shoeboxes will receive $500, $750 and/or $1000 for their PE program. Just fill a shoebox up or a gallon zip lock freezer bag with the supplies and send it to school with your child. If you do not have a shoe box or gallon zip lock freezer bag, please ask your teacher to tell coach JJ Downs and he will send one home with your child.   Make sure to label your boxes with your child’s name, teacher's name, grade and name of your school so that your child can earn credit in order to win prizes!
