More help with the school supplies drive

From Liisa, SMSgt Temple’s wife: This came from Rex’s mom Maxine and his sister Jill – it was in the local paper back home in Somerset County, PA this week

Friedens students help Afghan children

Each year in conjunction with the 100th day of school, Friedens Elementary tries to support a worthy cause. This year it decided to support Air Force SMSgt. Rex Temple, a native of Rockwood, with his fight to stop the War on Terror by providing school supplies for Afghan children. By educating tomorrow’s leaders in Afghanistan, they are supporting our troops today. The goal was to collect 100 school items by the 100th day of school. Monetary donations were also accepted. The students surpassed that goal collecting much more than 100 items. The Stoystown Lioness organization agreed to team up with the school to help send the items to Afghanistan. Shown packing the school supplies are from back to front: Austin Heitzer, Rubyellen Berkebile (teacher and Stoystown Lioness member), Catherine Bereider, Riley Zylstra, Avery Heiple, Mckay Ross, Reagan Lynch, Dominic Odom and Shane Roberts.
