Troops overseas will be enjoying a bit of Brooklyn hospitality this holiday season thanks to the Marine Park Intermediate School 278’s Builders Club, which supported Boatsies Boxes, an organization that creates stockings and other care packages to sendto US Troops serving overseas to help them feel more at home while they are protecting freedom abroad.

This is the fifth year that IS 278, 1925 Stuart Street off Fillmore Avenue, has supported Boatsies Boxes and it has scored the biggest success to date, with more than 70 stockings filled with treats to be sent to military personnel.

The Builders Club is a middle school branch of the Kiwanis organization, which encourages its members to be of service to others.
