School supplies collected by American Legion Post 187 are packed and ready for deployment.
“The school supplies drive for children of the soldiers of the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Ft. Bragg was an incredible success,” said American Legion Post 187 representative Pete Lambert.
The donated school supplies were sorted and boxed and will be transported to Ft. Bragg’s local schools.
The drive started June 29 and ended Aug. 3.
“We are the primary source for them to obtain school supplies for children of their low income soldiers and the children of those deployed,” said Lambert.
