Students are saying thank you to local veterans with an early Christmas gift.
Fairview Middle School and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit teamed up to host a holiday luncheon for around 200 veterans and their families.
Students raised more than $2,500 to make the event a possibility. Volunteers served meals and gave out gift bags with hand-written notes.
Fairview Middle School Student Thomas Brown tells us it was “to just say ‘thank you’ to them because they’ve done so much for us. They should have so much given back to them than just this but this is what we can do and so we might as well try.”
This is the second year students have put on the holiday luncheon.
