The IKM-Manning third graders had an opportunity to begin the new year by writing letters to support American troops overseas, thanks to Amy and Jeff Bradley and Thrivant Financial. Amy was familiar with a website, adoptaussoldier.org, and in the past, she and Jeff had adopted a soldier through this program. This year, they decided to adopt an entire unit. Thrivant Financial provided an action team card to purchase toiletries and snacks for a care package for the unit, and for providing postage for mailing the package to the adopted 23-28 soldiers. The site suggested sending letters with the care package, so Amy contacted the third grade teachers and asked if the students would be interested in writing letters to the soldiers. Writing the letters provided students not only with a chance to sharpen their writing skills, but a chance to practice good citizenship as well!
