Campbellsville Elementary School students are putting their art skills to use to help soldiers this Christmas.
For the fourth year, CES is participating in “Project Rudolph,” a campaign to provide gift bags to soldiers deployed overseas, injured veterans and soldiers traveling through airports around Christmas time.
Last year, “Project Rudolph” bags were given to service members in about 20 countries around the world. More than 17,500 bags were given around the world. For some soldiers, this is the only Christmas present they will receive.
For their part, CES students made Christmas ornaments in Adrienne Hash’s art class. When finished, CES will send about 400 ornaments to be included in the “Project Rudolph” bags.
Students made reindeer ornaments.
CES Guidance Counselor Sonya Orberson said making the ornaments allows students to learn to do something kind for others.
