Making a Merry Christmas

Friday, December 3, 2010

Shortly after Veterans Day, students at Cherokee Roosevelt Elementary School began collecting items to be sent to area troops who won't be home for Christmas. On Thursday, students who have relatives serving overseas, sometimes including one of their parents, brought a bus full of items to Central Bank to be distributed as part of the bank's "Christmas Boxes Program". The students received help bringing in all their Christmas Boxes from the staff of Central Bank and by members of the Cherokee VFW L.A. Wescott Post 2253. Iraq Veteran Matt Johnson, and Central Bank President Chuck Wulfsen, middle background, thanked the kids for all their hard work and told them how much their gifts will be appreciated by their loved ones who are overseas.
