TRiO teams up with campus vets for holiday card-a-thon to King residents

Green Bay area high school students in the Upward Bound program, hosted in the TRiO and Precollege office under the leadership of Michael Casbourne, are teaming up with veterans on campus to help bring holiday cheer to Wisconsin veterans. The little town of King (near Waupaca) is the site of a residential veteran’s facility with 720 residents. Upward Bound is looking to send a homemade holiday card to every resident. A tall order — but by partnering with the campus vets club, and devoting Upward Bound’s December community service hours to this project, TRiO will have a head start on this ambitious undertaking but will still need your help: “Please consider making a holiday card thanking a vet. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. We will personalize the card, and together with members of the Vets 4 Vets Club, deliver the cards on Dec. 14. We need all cards turned in to the TRiO office by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 10. Wouldn’t it be great if we had enough cards to give each veteran two cards? Please help us spread the holiday cheer!”
