Three students from Carbon Career & Technical Institute in Jim Thorpe presented a $200 check and various bundles of clothing to the Major Paul Syverson Veterans Sanctuary in Polk Township. The students raised the money through three schoolwide events: a jump-a-thon for vets, a Valentine’s Day flower sale and a dress down day. The events and donations were part of the students’ SkillsUSA American Spirit Project. The sanctuary is named after Major Paul Syverson, a Special Forces Officer who was killed in a mortar attack in Iraq in 2004, and serves the community with beds and meals.
