I’d like to send out a truly heartfelt “Thank You” to all of the students, staff and their families at the Snoqualmie Valley schools for their generous support and items donated toward the American Legion Auxiliary’s care packages. These donations, along with beautiful artwork and letters of support, were sent in care packages to a troop of soldiers deployed from Joint Base Lewis McChord. The soldiers appreciated knowing that citizens were thinking about them, while they were far from home during the holidays. We sent 33 boxes, one for each soldier, filled with items that make them a little more comfortable and remind them of home. Each package was received with a smile.
