Christmas for the Troops
Robert Toombs Christian Academy’s freshman class gathered items for their class Christmas project to send to service men and women overseas. This year the class chose to send their items to where ‘Our Hometown Hero Dustin Wright’ was stationed. The class gathered canned goods and other items for the troops while the Elementary art classes worked on Christmas cards for them. Our local Dot Foods heard what the class was doing and showed up in their military-themed trailer with a pallet full of food to send over to the troops!
