Native American Leadership (NAL) students came together and created 137 cards for the 1011 Army Reserve Unit deploying in September. The cards will be put with goody bags being packed for the unit prior to their deployment. The Coffeyville Chamber of Commerce is serving as a collection point for items for soldier goody bags.  Small items to donate include snacks, shaving cream, wipes, toothpaste, crossword puzzles and playing cards.

“It is very important to let our soldiers know how important they are to us because they put their lives on the line for our country,” said Kelsi Graham, freshman NAL member. 

Taylor Davis, NAL Coach, organized the community service project.  “Community service is a large component of the Native American Leadership program at Coffeyville Community College. It is amazing to witness how thoughtful our young people can be,” said Davis.  Davis and the NAL students are active in multiple community service projects throughout the year including Red Raven Holiday and the Youth Intertribal Powwow.
