Jacob Epstein and other students at St. Mary Catholic School in Hagerstown made their April fundraiser a benefit to support the Armed Forces Foundation in Washington, D.C.
The organization supports the families of active-duty and retired military.
A donation of $289 was presented to the foundation at the May 18 monthly dinner. The Epstein family attended the dinner to help serve the families of the wounded military and medical staff at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
The Epstein family visits monthly to volunteer, and they took the check from St. Mary on the trip — as well as 256 cupcakes for the medical staff and families.
