BARNEGAT – One Barnegat elementary teacher is making the holidays a little brighter for our troops overseas this Christmas season.

Fourth grade teacher at the Cecil S. Collins School, Michelle Lombardi, is putting together care packages for these brave men and women as part of her Christmas in Camouflage project.

Christmas in Camouflage began after Lombardi’s boyfriend was deployed four years ago. Outside of molding young minds, Lombardi is also a singer and songwriter, writing the song “Christmas in Camouflage.”

Since then, she has taken it upon herself with the Christmas in Camouflage Project, sending care packages overseas each year.

Lombardi stated that her goal for this year was to send at least 50 packages.

You can also find Lombardi’s song “Christmas in Camouflage” on iTunes, Google Play, and Apple Music. Proceeds from her music benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
