Cadets from the Westwood Academy Army JROTC program participated in a Holiday Community Service Project with Peppermint Patti’s Academy & Daycare in Fort Pierce. Our Cadets began preparing for this event three weeks in advance by bringing in new toys and wrapping them.
We gave 85 new toys to the children of the daycare, whose ages range from less than a year to 5 years old. Once the kids opened up their new toys, our Cadets spent time playing with the children.
Huge praise goes to these students for volunteering their time and effort to bring additional happiness to others during the holiday season and for continuing to build bonds in our local community with their professionalism. This event was extra special because several children attended Peppermint Patti’s for daycare.
