Heather Rhinhart, a NorthStar EMT and AmeriCorps Emergency Response Corps member recently coordinated a care package project for United States Marine Corp soldiers who are serving at overseas duty posts.
The project was the product of a sustained effort throughout the MSAD 58 school system, with Kingfield, Strong, Stratton, and Phillips elementary schools leading the effort. Donations from the students in these schools and NorthStar/AmeriCorps staff resulted in 125 pounds of food and personal items collected and then shipped to the Marines.
“A large quantity of goods were sent out to soldiers in diverse locations around the world with Heather’s coordination and the great collaboration among the schools,” said David Robie, NorthStar director. “Look for more community efforts spearheaded by her throughout the year as she demonstrates NorthStar and AmeriCorps’ commitment to local communities.”
