WALDRON, IN --
It may have been the second annual Military Apreciateion Night for Morristown and Waldron high schools, but it was the first time the two schools, along with Morristown Matters and Waldron Will, honored Helping Hands for Freedom on the hardwood.
On Dec. 11, the two schools and communities came together for a girls-boys basketball doubleheader, honored 80 veterans from Shelby county, and raised over $2,400 for Helping Hands for Freedom.
Those in attendance learned about how Helping Hands for Freedom was originated by co-founder, Patrick Shannon, and received information on the upcoming Route for the Brave, which begins in April of 2016.
"Thank you to all who came out: Shelby Eastern Schools District, Morristown High School, Waldron High School, Morristown Matters, and Waldron Will for not only a good night, but helping us honor our veterans. It truly was a great night," Shannon said.
This was the first military appreciation game honoring Helping Hands for Freedom in Shelby county.
