Give back this holiday season by participating in U.S. Adopt a Soldier Program

Picture source:

We are asking our community to give back to service members during the holiday season. Tina Henderson, the parent of AFA sophomore student Phillip Henderson, adopted a platoon through “Project Frontlines” which is a short-term/on-time-care package program to help support our troops. AFA and Mrs. Henderson is supporting a platoon that consists of about 15 service members, who call themselves the Death Dealers. Unfortunately, we have not been told their location but we have received correspondence from their platoon leader who shared what his soldier’s needs and likes are.  We are looking to send care packages as soon as possible and request our Farragut Family participation!

Please bring all items to Amy Stabile in the Upper School Office by Friday, December 8th.
