For the past month, students, parents and staff of Kids ‘R’ Kids Preston Vineyard, West Frisco and Legacy West have been partnering with the Helping a Hero Foundation to sell and decorate cardboard bricks in order to build a model that will illustrate the types of homes that are built by the Wounded Hero Program. The cardboard home presented during the parade will be a visual tribute to our nation’s veterans and a source of pride for the kids who built it.
Karen Shelley from Kids ‘R’ Kids of West Frisco says they enjoyed participating in the Veteran’s Day parade last year, and that the children see this as “a way of saying a huge ‘thank you’ to our veterans. We are very proud and honored to be a part of this very special event!” During the parade, representatives of the Kids ‘R’ Kids schools will be handing out fliers with more information on how the community can join in the effort through purchasing bricks and making additional donations.
