The West DeFuniak Elementary, Kiwanis Kids Club recently sent snacks to soldiers stationed in Afghanistan. The Platoon Sergeant for these soldiers, SFC Cole,  just happens to be a local alumnus of Paxton High School.

This event not only helped these soldiers have some nice holiday snacks, it also helped students understand the benefits of helping those who are sacrificing to serve our great country!

In addition to sending snacks to soldiers, Families First Network informed that WDE Students and Staff were able to help 22 families in need with our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.   

The Food Drive helped local families have a nice holiday meal, and it also helped students understand the benefits of helping the less fortunate.
