Ark. school children correspond with Vietnamese orphans

January 24, 2007

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Sixth graders at a Bentonville school are learning a lesson in goodwill from a school project, putting together and sending care packages to Vietnam. The students at Spring Hill Middle School have been seeking donations from local businesses and filling boxes with toiletries, toys and candy. They also are writting letters, sharing information about American culture and asking Vietnamese children about theirs. In addition, the boxes will have booklets that teach the English language alphabet. The students will send the goods to an orphanage in Vietnam. Their project is part of a social studies class.
