CES fourth-graders pack care packages for troops

Chester Elementary School fourth-graders work with Gina Pixler, from Feather River Blue Start Moms, to prepare care packages to be sent to local troops. Students packed 15 boxes with toiletries, books, snacks, letters from home, and loads of candy that they collected from their Treats for Troops project in October. The students enjoyed participating in the project and they said it made them feel good to do something for the troops.
