RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A lot of students are off Monday to honor Veterans Day.
State Superintendent Mark Johnson wants you to spend that day making holiday cards for those currently enlisted.
“Everyone can participate. Whether you make this a family project or a card drive at school, church or with a civic organization, we are calling on North Carolinians to encourage children and adults to send greetings and well wishes,” Johnson said. “Let’s make sure our service members know that we are all thinking of them and that we appreciate their service to our country.”
The deadline to send the cards is Nov. 15.
