Just in time for the holidays, Michael Boomer’s leadership skills development class spent their entire block putting together gifts for children. The gifts included mugs, candy canes, gift cards, stuffed animals, Rubik’s Cubes, hot chocolate, and stress balls.
The supplies were available through the Semper Fi Fund in order to provide for the children of military veterans. It gave the chance for students to give back to those who have served in the military.
“I love the opportunity for the school, for the class, and students to step out of their comfort zone and become self-aware of helping others that help us,” said Boomer.
