Here is How You Can DONATE to OMK! Donation Info
Fall River is a 4K-12th Grade School located in Fall River, Wisconsin. This year they had an all-school assembly for Veterans Day. The tree you see in the picture was located just outside the school’s gym doors where everyone entered for the Veterans Day Assembly. The POW table was set up in the gym. It is pretty much what you would see at a formal military event.
A great big thank you to the Wisconsin Association of Legal Administrators for the $1000 donation to Wisconsin Operation Military Kids.
A big Thank You to the Hegg Happy Harvesters 4-H Club from Trempealeau County for the kind donation of items to fill our Hero Packs for Operation Military Kids. We appreciate it very much!
