Wednesday evening local Peoria high schoolers spent the day honoring veterans.
Since early November the Fuller Center has been recognizing a Veteran a day. This year Peoria Notre Dame students lent a helping hand. Veterans were given gifts and a plaque.
This has been the fifth year the organization has went out to honor Veterans.
“So many of them haven’t been thanked, we’ve went to Veteran’s homes before who said nobody ever thanked him,” Debbie Gaught said. “So it’s definitely a unique situation to be in, to go out and thank them because it’s truly deserving.”
