Lincoln Elementary School homerooms stuffed stockings with treats to send some welcome holiday cheer to the women and men serving in the military who will not make it home for the holidays. Lincoln families donated the stocking stuffers and students made handmade cards expressing their thanks and well wishes for our service women and men. Lincoln partnered with Beinhuaer Funeral Homes in their "Stockings for Soldiers & Veterans" holiday drive. Beinhauer's took care of the packaging and postage for delivery.
