High School Student Collects Donations for Deployed Troops


Leading up to the July 4th holiday, Highlands High School senior Adriana Montemurro collected supplies and monetary donations for our Deployed Troops. Her themed effort, "Adriana's Surf & Turf Drive", focused on creating care packages filled with beef jerky, goldfish crackers, tuna and snacks. Through her efforts, hundreds of items were donated and she also raised $445! Adriana coordinated her effort through Summer Tissue of Military Connections, a non-profit organization in Pittsburgh that provides care packages, equipment and supplies to service members overseas. Way to go, Adriana!
