More support for the Honor Flight Network! Students to accept shoe donation from NBT Insurance Agency
Maine Memorial Elementary Student Council members received a very generous boost in the number of shoes they donated to the Twin Tiers Honor Flight Network this school year. In June the students accepted a donation from the employees of NBT Insurance Agency and NBT Bank.
The group donated nearly 1,000 pairs of shoes to add to the amount students had already collected. In total, the students donated 7,500 shoes, or 150 bags full. That is equal to $1500 raised for the Honor Flight organization which provides free trips for American Veterans to Washington D.C., where they are honored for their service and have the opportunity to see their war memorial. Local veterans will benefit.
An organization buys the shoes and distributes them to people in need. It’s a win-win!
Maine Memorial is very appreciative of NBT’s efforts and for their support of our Veterans and our Spartans.
Great job Little Spartans!
