First Shipment of Supplies Arrives in Afghanistan

The students at Holy Cross Catholic School are helping Dr. Chad Zehms, a Navy serviceman with ties to Northeast Wisconsin, help the children of Kunduz, Afghanistan. Holy Cross students raised money and collected supplies throughout the months of November and December to ship to a local school there, which is currently housed in tents. The first five boxes arrived this Tuesday.

Another Skype assembly from Green Bay to Afghanistan is in the works in the coming weeks. Holy Cross students will be able to see Afghan students receiving the supplies. Do you have a question you'd like to ask the Afghan children receiving the supplies? E-mail it to czehms@holycrossfamily.org.
