Over the past three years, Desert Oasis students under the guidance of Mrs. Deby Ellet have participated in the Holiday Mail for Heroes program by collecting holiday cards each year from the students. This year, Red Cross Imperial Valley Service Center again witnessed the students enthusiasm for the program when they announced early in the school year that they would be participating.
“Desert Oasis High School students contributed their own handmade creations, which will no doubt bring a smile to someone’s face,” said Mrs. Deby Ellet, a teacher at DOHS. Ellet continued by saying that “Desert Oasis students came together to create cards that will go out to service members, their families and veterans all over the world. This is a wonderful project that brings a lot of satisfaction to our student body.”
For the first time this year Imperial Valley Easter Seals also took on the campaign and wrote and designed cards that were completed in time to mail by the December 10th deadline.
