Cadets from the Topeka High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC are making the holiday season brighter for 35 families in the community. Recently the cadets went shopping with gift cards provided by the Christmas Bureau. The cadets had to budget, plan then decide how the gift cards could best be spent. The gifts will be wrapped and delivered by the cadets before Christmas. The cadets participate in Christmas charities like the Adopt-a-Family campaign to learn the importance of community service.
