High School East Students Support Veterans Charity with Donations


TOMS RIVER-For for its final NEA Big Read activity in honor of the novel The Things They Carried, High School East handed over donations to the local non-profit group Always Supporting Our Military.

Donations were solicited and contributed by HSE staff, students, and families during the month of March. More than 1,000 non-perishable food and toiletry items were collected, filling 20 boxes. All students wrote thank you notes to deployed service members. They also decorated military “thank you” rocks, tiles, and wooden shapes.

Always Supporting Our Military will send all items to U.S. troops overseas.
