BHC celebrates Veterans Day by sending packages to troops

To celebrate Veterans Day, Black Hawk College students at the Quad-Cities Campus put together 25 care packages to send to troops serving overseas.

The care packages included snacks, cereal, drink mixes, notepads, pens, pencils, Black Hawk College T-shirts, tissues, baby wipes, toothpaste and other items. (See more pictures in Facebook.)

The project was sponsored by the Student Life Office and the Military Students and Veterans Club.

Black Hawk College was named a Military Friendly School for 2011, 2012 and 2013 by G.I. Jobs magazine.
