Hero Packs Are On Their Way
Northwood School has turned Field Day into a year long event. Our
theme this year is Heroes. In December, we would like to honor the
young heroes of our community by doing a Hero Pack Project through
Operation: Military Kids. Hero Packs are a way to say thank you and
show military kids our support. They are given to children at the
time of their family member’s deployment, often delivered by other
children from the community. Hero packs are designed to help connect
kids with their loved ones who have been deployed. They
contain a handwritten letter/drawing, fun items (puzzles, playing
cards, stuffed animals, stickers, frisbees, reading and coloring
books, small games, etc.) and connection tools (disposable cameras,
calling cards, photo albums, scrapbooks, journals, etc.).
Northwood School assembled Hero Packs December 7th during Team
Time. Teams created letters/cards and filled the Hero Packs
with items they have donated. The packs are smaller sized
backpacks supplied by Operation: Military Kids. The packs will
be given to children from New Hampshire. More information about
Operation: Military Kids and Hero Packs can be found at
