Following a weeklong effort of fund collection, on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, Jacksonville Elementary School contributed a grand total of $775 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Armed with a mission to serve those who serve for the good of the nation, as well as those affected by the September 11 attacks, Jacksonville Elementary students brainstormed ideas for obtaining donations and devoted their weekends to the cause. Several students, for example, operated lemonade stands to procure contributions.

Giving back to the community is merely second nature for Jacksonville Elementary, as it also supports a "Green Team" for environmental clean-up and a Halloween candy collection for distribution to children who are unable to participate in the holiday.

The Wounded Warrior Project, founded in 2003, strives to extend public knowledge of the needs of injured service members, provide assistance to injured service members in need, and sponsor programs and services to improve the condition of injured service members.
