Troop Collection


 This Veterans Day Help Support the Troops

The Hunter Mill District Office and South Lakes High School Athletics are teaming together to support a United States Navy unit currently stationed in Afghanistan.  Beginning now through November 11th, we will be collecting requested items that will help bring a little bit of home to our troops.  The unit's commanding officer is CDR Halle Dunn, who grew up in Reston and was a graduate of South Lakes High School.  His unit consists of 78 soldiers.

In addition, South Lakes High School will be collecting contributions at the Friday, November 8th varsity football game.  Boxes for your items will be at the main gate.
