CHATHAM, NJ - The Wounded Warrior Project Club of Chatham High will be making a delivery on Sunday to Community Hope, a local veterans shelter, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
"We wanted to do something special for veterans this month," Jack Casano-Boris, one of the four presidents of the club, said. "We recently held a drive through the high school with our other officers, and collected canned goods and children’s items (toys, books, crayons, etc.).
"It was an amazing turnout, where we collected over 300 canned goods and 300 children’s items."
The presidents of the CHS Wounded Warrior Project Club are Casano-Boris and his twin sister, Lea; Noah Shaw and Claire Tunny. Last year, Tunny earned her Girl Scout Gold Award by improving the women's community room for the Veterans.
The club's teacher advisor is Cynthia Gagliardi, an honors English teacher at CHS.
Casano-Boris also credited CHS Key Club members for their work contributing to the drive.
