DES students honored as Capital Heroes

Jan. 4, 2016


Capital Bank and WTEN-TV 10 have honored Duanesburg Elementary students as Capital Heroes in a video and Daily Gazette newspaper ad for their annual efforts to show veterans and soldiers near and far just how much they care.

Each year, the students collect personal care items as well as cash donations and then  team up with Watervliet resident and Wounded Warrior Project coordinator Marcia Carlson to send packages to wounded soldiers in Germany. The students also hold a Veterans Day assembly each year to honor local members and veterans of the armed forces. Read more and view a photo gallery about their good work this year.
