Thanksgiving surprise

Out of Door Academy gifted 75 Gocio Elementary School families with Thanksgiving meal kits.

Thanksgiving came early last week for 75 Gocio Elementary School students when they received Thanksgiving meal packages from Out-of-Door Academy.

The annual partnership between the two schools allows for families to be surprised with all the fixings for a holiday meal. Each package came with traditional Thanksgiving foods, a bilingual cookbook, children’s toys and a Publix gift card, so families could purchase a ham or turkey.

ODA students delivered the packages Nov. 22.
