Williams Elementary Collects for Operation Care Package

Towards the end of the school year, Williams Upper Elementary School secretary, Toni Rivera received an email from the television news station, KCRA Channel 3, regarding an opportunity in participating in Operation Car Package.

‚ÄúThis was a great opportunity for our students and staff to show our support for our troops,‚ÄĚ said Rivera, ‚ÄúThis is a very special topic for me as both my sons are in the military and one has been deployed six times overseas.‚ÄĚ

Students and staff members began collecting Care Package items which would be sent to our troops for their Fourth of July celebration!

Many of the items included instant coffee, instant oatmeal, instant soups, granola bars, toiletries, sunscreen, and other items included on the list of approved items most needed by our troops.

Williams Upper Elementary Students also made colorful, patriotic pictures, cards and other letters what will be included in the care packages.

‚ÄúWe were overwhelmed with the generosity, and pride of our campus,‚ÄĚ said Rivera.

Rivera has also began collecting the names of former students and current staff members who’ve served for our country and placing their names on a special display in the school office.

‚ÄúI have collected about 40 names, going back to 2002,‚ÄĚ said Rivera.

Operation Care Package is a combined effort between the Red Cross Capital Region, KCRA Channel 3, and the Roseville Automall. ‚Ė†
