HFM BOCES Life Skills class displays their Thankful for a Veteran pillowcase projects

NOV. 20, 2015 – This November, HFM BOCES students in teacher Patti Muselbeck’s Life Skills class at Gloversville Middle School combined lessons about Veterans Day and Thanksgiving into a “Thankful For Our Veterans” project.

The students decorated pillowcases, wrote letters, and made patriotic crafts that will be sent to troops in various combat hospitals via “Project Pillowcase,” part of the student outreach of Operation Care Packages: Kids Reach Out.

The students expressed how happy they were at the opportunity to both thank a veteran and to make something that could make a soldier’s day a little brighter.
