On June 16 Soldiers Angel Erin Sitterly accepted a $500.00 check from Green Gables Elementary!  The students raised the funds through their Penny Harvest Program which is a unique program whereby Students “harvest” pennies and choose a charity that will benefit. The program also encourages the students to be a part of the process when it comes time for the organization to use the funds.   Thanks to a great suggestion we will be using the money to purchase blankets from the Angel Store that the students can help make for the wounded! It’s definitely a gift that will keep on giving!! Thank you Erin for taking time from your busy schedule to visit the school, accept the check and speak to the students!  Check out the story here
