To Afghanistan, With Love

Volunteer Jennifer Lejeune (from left) and St. Francis students Ethan Lejeune, 7, Katelynn Sonnier, 9, and Owen Cart, 7, worked to put together care packages Thursday morning for 18 soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan. Many of the donated items for the care packages were collected during the second annual Cpl. Matthew Richard Memorial 5k Run/Walk held May 11. Richard lost his life serving his country in 2011. Some of the care packages are being sent to members of Richard’s unit.
