Blackwood Terrace staff wearing Jeans For Troops

On Wednesday, November 7, Deptford Township Schools joined the millions of nationwide participants wearing jeans to work to honor Veterans Day 2018 and support military families.

The event is called “Jeans for Troops” and supports the GI Go Fund. Since 2011, patriotic Americans from coast to coast have held a simple fundraiser at their office or school that has had an enormous impact on the lives of military veterans and their families. The GI GO Fund provides tens of thousands of dollars in financial assistance to veteran families in need.

Staff members across the district dressed in jeans and paid a $5 donation to support our veterans.
