On Friday, six 7th grade girls from the Shawano Community Middle School went on a field trip to the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King and delivered over 1,100 needed items to residents, such as clothes, lotion, and brain games.
The girls had spent the morning with residents, learning about their sacrifices, and current lives, while playing games like Yahtzee.
The girls left inspired and wanting to continue serving. Leader, Caitlyn Kroeger, decided to extend the effort into spending time with residents of Shawano nursing homes.
