FAIRVIEW STUDENTS RAISE FUNDS FOR VETERANS-On November 18, 2016, Fairview Elementary’s 6th Grade class hosted a school dance to benefit the Homes for Our Troops Organization (HFOT). HFOT is a privately funded nonprofit organization that builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes for the most severely injured Post 9/11 Veterans. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury. A total of $200 was raised for the organization. Miss Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s Outstanding Teen, Madison Dompkosky, attended the event and assisted the children in creating ‘Thank You’ cards to send to our troops deployed during the holiday season.
