MACA students and families assisted in collecting and mailing care packages to our troops overseas. Middle School student government members came up with “MACA CARES,” a student-led initiative to collect funds in order to send care packages to our troops in the Middle East. These care packages included items such as Military Edition Bibles, snacks, protein bars, chewing gum, gift cards and more.
Peggy Neilson, teacher at MACA and head of Middle School Student Government stated, “My students expressed a desire to do something for our troops overseas… and this idea really got them excited!”
“It was really neat how the whole school supported our project,” commented Middle School Student Government President, Sadie Zenter.
Throughout the year MACA looks for ways to “Go Beyond” the walls of our school and community to serve others. On Tuesday, March 7, 2018 the students boxed up the care packages and traveled to the Mount Airy Post Office to send them.
