Ms. Velez and Ms. Appel’s third-grade Dual Language students at Archer school joined together to do something special for soldiers that are thousands of miles away from their families by donating 100 golf balls to Bunkers in Baghdad during the holiday season. 

Founded in 2008, the nonprofit organization collects new and used golf balls and golf clubs and then ships them overseas to soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Third-graders learned a great deal about the organization and about the importance of giving back. Students enjoyed collecting and decorating the golf balls, knowing that they’re actions will bring smiles to many.
