JCD is once again proud to be partnering with the West Haven VA for their annual Stockings for Soldiers toiletry drive. All donated items will go to their infirmed veterans. Our veterans have given so much to our country and we feel it is important that we give back, especially during the holiday season. 

Our entire school community is asked to participate. Grade levels have been assigned specific items so as to ensure we cover as many needs as possible.

The drive will run from Monday November 14th through Thursday December 8th

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration!!
