Sheridan High School's W.A.T.CH. program is collecting cards, letters and other items to fill care packages that they will send to the troops this holiday season.

Tracey Hewitt-Adams, Career Center Coordinator at SHS, tells us more.

Hewitt-Adams said that they worked with the elementary schools last week asking them to write letters to troops, and W.A.T.CH. students will be collecting items through this Friday, December 7th.

Stop by the High School front office or the career center to make a donation. To find out more about how to help, call Hewitt-Adams at SHS at 672-2495 ext. 2109.

The W.A.T.CH. program, or We Are the Change, is made up of about twenty students at SHS who advocate for abstinence from drugs, alcohol and tobacco while in school.

They sign pledges to remain drug and alcohol free in high school and also communicate the advantages of avoiding substance abuse with younger students in the district.

Some suggested items:
Cards and letters, coffee, beef jerky, bubble gum, hard candy (Jolly Ranchers and jawbreakers), Pop Tarts, tuna kits, comic books, baggies with ziplocks, magazines, chapstick, Baby Wipes, Visine eye drops, foot powder, deodorant, shaving cream, shampoo, soap bars, soft toilet paper, Tums and Rolaids, throat lozenges, and sanitary napkins.
