Eastwood Honor Flight fundraiser
Eastwood Elementary students learned some valuable lessons about teamwork during a special fundraising project the sixth grade students started during Kindness Week. Originally, the students' goal was to raise enough money to send one World War II Veteran to Washington, D.C. through the Northern Valley Honor Flight program.
Results of their fundraising efforts were so effective that they were able to raise enough money to send five Veterans to Washington to see the new WWII Memorial built in their honor.
The students were commended during an all-school assembly held on Friday, Feb. 20.
