Floresville ISD honored Memorial Day and the men and women who have died defending our country by raising funds for military veterans and their families. We took part in the 2014 “Jeans For Troops” fundraising drive benefiting the GI Go Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans returning home find employment, go to college, access their health care and financial benefits, and link to housing.
During the drive, we gave our employees the opportunity to wear jeans to work in exchange for a $5 donation to the GI Go Fund. Preparing our students for a prosperous life includes modeling acts of kindness and generosity as a reminder to our students that Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women who have fought and died to preserve our liberties, our freedoms, and the American way of life.
Thank you, Veterans, for your service to our great Nation, the United States of America.
