The annual tradition involves the help from special needs students at the school.

Sharon McManus is a Special Education teacher at Chatfield. She says alumni have also come back to lend a hand.

McManus says this tradition holds a special place in her heart because she has two sons who served in the Marine Corps.

“I just know as a mom what it feels like to have a loved one away and to know that they need a piece of home any chance they can get it,” said McManus.
