Delmarva Christian first-graders have been gathering and packaging toiletries, snacks, magazines, food and activity books for the United States Air Force Unit 61233 stationed in Qatar, under the direction of Delmarva Christian teachers Emilee Virdin and Rachael Savini.

The unit, deployed two months ago, is planning for a six-month overseas operation. With assistance from first-grade mother Amy Goodhue, these care packages are being mailed out and scheduled to arrive to the troops in time for Christmas.
