Pre-K kids at The Nest have a personal connection to their cause
On Tuesday, Dec. 4, The Nest’s pre-K class held its annual hot chocolate sale, which raises funds for U.S. troops overseas. Spearheaded by pre-K teacher Larissa Nordone (known to her class of 16 children as “Miss Larissa”), the group raised money to buy presents to send troops in Afghanistan for the holidays.
Nordone, whose brother Joey is currently deployed in Afghanistan, says the cause is near and dear to her heart. “The support that our parents show us is amazing each year,” she said. “This sale that these children take on means so much to our troops, who are so far away from their families during the holiday season. I couldn’t be more proud of my kids, and I’m grateful for everyone’s support!”
