BLAIRSTOWN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
HELPS HOMELESS VETERANS
A check of $1,100.00 was given to “Operation Chillout”, which is an all-volunteer not-for-profit homeless veteran’s outreach program. Their purpose is to help veterans in need and to end homelessness in the general public.
This year the organization is building a Tiny House for a Warren County veteran. The money will be used to purchase a television and to help pay for the heating/AC unit in the house.
The project was sponsored by Blairstown’s Student Council. They created posters and collected the donations. In addition, the entire school was involved in making cards thanking the veterans for their service. Warm hats were given to the veterans, as well. Staff members were involved by holding a “Dress-Casual” Day and donated the money for this project.
