Service Club is Collecting Holiday Stocking Stuffers for Veterans


Soldiers’ Angels

The LRHS Service Club is aiming to make veteran’s holidays bright with Holiday Stocking for Heroes project.

The holidays are a time for showing generosity, especially to those who have done so much for us. To show appreciation and gratitude for deployed veterans and service members, Lakeland Regional High School’s Service Club will be creating holiday stockings to give back to these incredible men and women. 

The Holiday Stockings for Heroes project is looking for donations to gather for the Soldiers’ Angels organization. The donations can be dropped off in Room 211 through November 23, 2021. Donations can also be brought to the Veterans Day concert, which will be held on November 11, 2021 at 6:30 p.m.
