Students from all levels of the Scarborough school system took part in Operation Cupid at the middle school Wednesday night, Jan. 27. More than $,1000 was raised to support 150 members of the U.S. Army Reserve 619th Transportation Company, now serving in Afghanistan, and their families. Students designed greeting cards and decorated Valentine’s Day goodie bags that will be shipped to Afghanistan filled with bags of candy, snacks, games, notebooks and pens, puzzles, CDs and DVDs. The Builders Club at the Middle School has been running Operation Cupid for seven years with support from the Scarborough Kiwanis Club, the Key Clubs at Scarborough and South Portland high schools, the K-Kids and arts programs at Wentworth Intermediate School, Scarborough’s primary schools and community volunteers.
