Kettering Schools show they care

Times Community Newspapers of Greater Dayton Ohio: "Indian Riffle Elementary, Kettering schools show they care The Kettering City Schools joined the city of Kettering, Town & Country Shopping Center and local businesses and organizations in collecting items for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan during the month of October. The community wide effort, dubbed 'Kettering Cares,' culminated on October 27, national 'Make a Difference Day,' when all of the items that had been collected were delivered to Town & Country Shopping Center, where members of the Blue Star Mothers worked all day to put together care packages for our troops overseas.

Indian Riffle Elementary School's Student Council (pictured above) took the challenge to collect a box full of items seriously and in fact, ended up filling not only the big green box provided to them by the Blue Star Mothers, but also filled a total of 10 additional boxes with everything from snacks, cards and hand-held games to toiletries, batteries and CDs.
